    What research says about motivating pupils - and ourselves

    What research says about motivating pupils - and ourselves

    Motivation matters: naturally, we all know this. It’s what drives us, as humans, to behave and act in a certain way. In schools, you’d struggle to find a teacher, or even a pupil, who would say that motivation doesn’t have a part to play in teaching and learning.
    However, up until recently the science behind motivation was a mystery to classroom teachers. Peps Mccrea, the dean of learning design at the Ambition Institute, and director of research and development at Steplab, has been a key player in this change.
    In 2020, he published Motivation Teaching, a book which shifts through the science to bring educators practical advice about motivation. In this episode of Tes podagoy, Mccrea explains his findings, and shares the approaches to boosting motivation in your classroom.

One of the highlights to my week

I love this podcast I work in education but not in a school and this and the other tes podcasts make me feel like I am in a staff room with others talking about our passion. I don’t subscribe to the actual magazine as I am dyslexic and it imagine it’s very text heavy (hence podcasts are amazing for me) but when I get my new iPad hopefully in the next couple of month with text to speak function I have decided I am definitely going to subscribe to the magazine electronically if that is possible. Thank you all

Comment on Chair episode 15th October 2020

Grainnne has made a point I would like to contest, while homeschooling my children not once did they sit down for hours home learning. My kids are in primary school though, and I understand she may have been talking about Secondary school. Researching homeschooling at the moment, homeschooling children have most of their learning away from a desk/table.

Apologies, I do not know if I can make comments in this section but I love catching up and listening live when I can. The discussions here are very very thought provoking! LOVE IT!!!!!
