How People Learn II from the National Academies is a follow-up to…How People Learn and is available for free. They just released it (you can learn more at Ed Week’s article, A Landmark Education Science Report Gets an Update).
Like most reports from the National Academies, this one is overly-long, and I’ve only had a chance to skim it.
Chapter Six on “Motivation To Learn” looks particularly interesting to me.
However, if you want read about the topic in a much more accessible, and brief, way, check out the Science of Learning From Deans For Impact.
Because of that chapter on motivation, I’m adding this info to Best Posts On “Motivating” Students.
