Dan Pink on the Science of Motivation

Dan Pink, author of the popular Whole New Mind, offers insights into what research tells us about motivation, potential, and the value (or lack their of) of reward systems.  It is a great video that has obvious implications for educators, especially those who feel that the seeming infallibility (and immediate gratification) of a carrot-on-a-stick is actually a hook without a worm. He also explores motivators that have long term benefits for learners and that help unlock the mind’s potential to think critically and creatively.

    This video is the antithesis of the white house's push for merit pay and more high stakes testing. One of the most popular terms in education right now is “evidence based practice”. What is the evidence telling you Arne?

    Incentives actually HURT performance. @DanielPink shows how intrinsic motivators, autonomy, mastery, and purpose win (http://bit.ly/3mgoZ)
