There has been some useful recent research on the importance of students having a “purpose for learning,” and I’ve also previously posted about the topic. I thought it would be useful to bring them all together.

Here’s how the Mindset Scholars Network talks about it:

Students value their schoolwork when they believe it is relevant to their lives and/or will help them connect to a purpose that is bigger than themselves—whether it is a contribution to their family, their community, society at large, or something else.

Here’s what I have so far:
