  • can extinguish intrinsic motivation encourage cheating, shortcuts, and unethical behavior diminish performance become addictive and expected crush creativity foster short term thinking crowd out good behavior
  • quantum behavioral mechanics are the starting point to re-think how to motivate students... how to help them be self-motivated
  • Quantum Behavioral Mechanics

    1. 1. SPARKING Innovation in Education Quantum Behavioral Mechanics beyond the common assumptions of Newtonian rules of behavior
    2. 2.
    3. 3. object in motion stays in motion... you get the idea
    4. 4. Punishing a behavior will result in less of that behavior.
    5. 5. Body @ rest will remain @ rest unless a force is acted upon
    6. 6. want more of a behavior.... reward it.
    7. 7. Force = mass times acceleration F = ma <ul><li>Newton’s 2nd Law </li></ul>
    8. 8. ( ç + M ) T = C M = pursuit of mastery T = teacher control C = compliance ç = content
    9. 9. Newton’s 3rd Law
    10. 10. For every action there is equal reaction. control time off task control compliance compliance poor performance
    11. 11. newtonian laws of behavior don’t always apply
    12. 12. what motivates our students Quantum Behavioral Mechanics
    13. 13. deadly flaws of carrots and sticks
    14. 14. For every action there is equal reaction. control engagement control compliance compliance inquiry/curiosity
    15. 15. Quantum Behavioral rules control autonomy compliance engagement
    16. 16. Let’s all be happy
    17. 17. ( p + M ) A = E M = pursuit of mastery A = autonomy E = engagement p = purpose
    18. 18. every teachers dreams of self-motivated, engaged students
    19. 19. Oh, crap! It’s not them, it’s us.
