Dan Pink was interviewed on CBS this morning, and it really gets at some key elements of motivation and goal-setting. There’s nothing new there for people familiar with his work, but it’s a great piece to show to colleagues and to students. I’ve embedded it below, though am not sure if it will show-up in an RSS Reader:

I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students and to The Best Posts On Students Setting Goals.

By the way, I’ll be doing an interview with Dan on his new book (which, for what it’s worth, includes several quotes from me — and my wife) for my Education Week Teacher column.
