Intrinsic motivation could be characterized as achieving an action for itself and for the joy in support. When an individual is intrinsically motivated that person does not act in light of outer prizes. Basically intrinsic motivated people doesn’t study for rewards such as awards, they study only for their interest (Ryan, 2000). On the other hand, this does not imply that intrinsically motivated people won't look for prizes. This just means that the prizes sometimes are not incredible enough to keep that person interested.
The intrinsic motivation benefits are numerous. Intrinsically motivated peoples are more eager to pursuer a task an ...view middle of the document...
Sometimes too many rewards also affect student motivation. This will lead to decrease in intrinsic motivation.
Why rewarding an already intrinsically rewarding behavior leads to decrease motivation? One of the main reasons is that student tend to examine their own motivations for engaging in something such as activity. Once they got reward by doing something, they focus on importance to the role of the strengthening in their conduct. Other reason is activities that firstly feel like play or fun can be changed into work or obligations at the point when fixed to an external prize.
Extrinsic rewards could be most successful approach to motivating behavior of student, but researchers warned that they should be used with caution, mainly with children. Extrinsic motivation can be applied a student doesn’t have an interest of performing an activity or basic skills are requiring, but these rewards should be small and rewards to be given according to the performance of behavior.
Motivational strategies for learning
Learn from mistakes
Kids, when they are little they make mistakes. They fall down at the first attempt to walk and parents give courage to get up and try gain. When they put their shirt on backwards, people smile and praise their independence.
By doing this kids get more encouraged. At this age, the world teaches them the disappointment is merely a path of achievement. (Donaldson, 2013) These little mistakes show us that learning from our mistakes is one of the best ways to motivate our learning abilities.
Maintain a positive attitude
If you want to be a successful person you must have always an optimistic attitude towards learning. A positive attitude will make you relax, remember, focus and ingest information as you learn. Positive attitude helps to cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worry and bad thinking. If you adopt it as a way of life, it will bring constructive changes into your life, and makes them happier, brighter and more successful. With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic and expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing and strengthening.
Monitor your learning
Do you feel you are in charge of your own learning? Do you learn well anyhow of how good or bad the teacher is, or even if there isn’t one at all? With the phenomenal wealth of information available today, we have more chance than ever to know nearly anything that is known.
When we talk about learning strategies is from the “Self-regulated learning”. According to self-regulate learning point of view that leaners tend to plan, monitor and control some parts of their own cognition, motivation, conduct and learning environment. To become more strategic students, students must assume rights of their learning and achievement results.
