The surprising truth about what motivates us

When I stumbled upon this animated talk through twitter and I watched it, it made me more aware of why I do things, the way I do them, and why I believe in spending a lot of time on sharing our knowledge and expertise for free outside our paid jobs too. It is an amazing realisation.

Now here's the great task: to make this happen in our everyday education. Wow!

Watch it and see if it resonates with the ways you are motivated and then think about how you can make use of these ideas in your own teaching. Would be interested to read your thoughts on this.

Math class needs a makeover

As a math graduate I could not help not getting intriguinged by Dan Meyer's talk. Amongst others, he says "Help (children you teach) less." Do you agree?

Wouldn't you think that the same teaching principles might apply in Language teaching too?

Well, sure, in our case English language teaching.

Interested to hear what you think.
