3 Today’s Webinar Student Motivation Activities for Engaged Learning

4 Motivation: To be moved to do something The degree to which a student puts effort into and focus on learning in order to experience success

5 Four Critical Factors in Student Motivation Competence/Mastery Autonomy Value/Interest Relatedness (Bandura, 1996; Dweck, 2010; Pintrich, 2003; Ryan & Deci, 2000; Seifert, 2004)

6 Competence and Mastery Students feel capable of accomplishing what is required of them. Teacher knows content and delivers instruction effectively. Specific learning goals are clearly communicated. Students have adequate time for practice and application. Students receive effective feedback.

7 Autonomy and Control Choices Time to explore content Students set learning goals Variety of materials and resources for learning

8 Value and Interest Model interest and enthusiasm Get to know what your students are interested in Make connections between learning and real-life Facilitate intrinsic motivation Use variety

9 Relatedness The need to feel a part of a group Appropriate interactions with others Learning is social

10 Student Engagement Student willingness, need, desire, and compulsion, to participate in, and be successful in the learning process. (Bomia, Beluzo, Demeester, Elander, Johnson, & Sheldon, 1997)

11 Benefits of Student Engagement Increased motivation Greater attention and focus Retention of learning Enhanced ability to transfer learning to multiple contexts

12 Classroom Engagement During a lesson, aim to engage students 90-100% of the time. Lessons where students are engaged 50% of the time or less are an ineffective use of instructional time. Wasting just 5 minutes a day will add up to 15 hours of lost instructional time in the course of a 180 day school year.


14 The Engaged Classroom All students are authentically engaged at least some of the time or most of students are authentically engaged most of the time. Ritual compliance and re- treatism is rarely observed and rebellion is non-existent.

15 The Well Managed Classroom Compliant and orderly classroom Picture of traditional education Most students appear to be working Little evidence of rebellion Retreatism is a real danger

16 The Pathological Classroom Students are off-task Retreatism and rebellion are easy to observe Some degree of authentic, ritual, and passive engagement Teacher spends most of time dealing with rebelling students rather than teaching
