Integrating Technology with the 6 C's in Motivation

  1. 1. Integrating technology and the 6 “C’s” in Motivation<br />By Gina DeMarco<br /> Teaching with Technology- ED 5700 <br /> July 27th, 2011<br />
  2. 2. Why is motivation important?<br />Do you want this? <br />Or this?<br />
  3. 3. Who can tell me any of the 6 “C’s”?<br />
  4. 4. The 6 “C’s” are…<br />Choice<br />Challenge<br />Control<br />Collaboration<br />Constructing meaning<br />Consequences<br />
  5. 5. How are they helpful?<br />Interactive for students<br />FUN!<br />More flexibility<br />Expand on typical “norms”<br />Student centered<br />
  6. 6. Choice <br />Allowing students to choose provides them with intrinsic motivation.<br />Students are motivated to learn about topics that are of interest to them.<br />Provide students a variety of media materials to accomplish the assigned task (Powerpoint, Blogs, Wikis, Digital Storytelling, etc)<br />Give students the freedom to choose their own topics <br />Allow students to choose their own groups<br />Definition <br />Application<br />
  7. 7. Challenge <br />Providing tasks to students that are just beyond their skill level but keep them motivated.<br />Definition <br />Application<br />Teacher provides feedback during students drafts of work. Teacher explains where the students can improve, what to add, or what to edit out. <br />This provides students with self efficacy and sustains their motivation. <br />Students can use rubrics and online websites to check their work, read feedback, and make edits<br />
  8. 8. Control<br />Involving the students into the classroom decision-making. When students play a part in control, they become responsible and independent. <br />Allow students to control group titles. Teacher should provide students with responsibilities for each role so they then can make the proper decisions. <br />Definition <br />Application<br />
  9. 9. Collaboration<br />Students use social interaction to communicate their ideas and thoughts. <br />This can be done in teamwork or groups. <br />Students can determine individual responsibilities to work towards end goal. <br />Teacher can recommend all students create a g-mail account, allowing them access to google docs. <br />Definition <br />Application<br />
  10. 10. Constructing meaning<br />If students perceive the value of knowledge, their level of interest increases.<br />In powerpoints for example, students should be informed that sometimes…less is more. <br />Definition<br />Application<br />
  11. 11. Consequences<br />A showcase of students work, increases student motivation.<br />Teachers can showcase students’ work by having them present in class or display their work students’ work in hallways, on class web-sites, or at a ceremony. <br />Definition<br />Application<br />
