    • ever thought it was going to be.
            • Elementary Teacher
  • Technology
    • When students are using technology as a tool or a support for communicating with others, they are in an active role rather than the passive role of recipient of information transmitted by a teacher, textbook, or broadcast.
  • Six “C’s” of Motivation
    • Choice
    • Challenge
    • Control
    • Collaboration
    • Constructing Meaning
    • Consequences
  • Choice
    • When students are given choices to select tasks that are close to their personal interests, their motivation to learn increases.
  • Challenge
    • When providing tasks requiring appropriate level of challenge, students are more likely to be motivated. Teachers should provide feedback to enhance students’ self-efficacy and sustain their motivation toward learning.
  • Control
    • When involved in the process of classroom control (e.g. decision-making, organization of content, choosing team members, etc.), students will be more responsible, independent, and self-regulated learners.
  • Collaboration
    • Students willingly work together and inspire each other to reach a desired goal and finish the group task.
    • Enhances individuals’ thinking and learning
    • Students share learning strategies and perspectives with each other through social interaction
  • Constructing Meaning
    • Students are given the opportunity to build a rationale for the meaningfulness of literacy activities. By perceiving the meaningfulness of activities and the value of knowledge, students’ learning motivation will enhance.
  • Consequences
    • Teachers provide channels for students to display their work and learn from each other. This also gives students a positive feeling about effort, ownership, achievement, and responsibility.
