The SDE Weekend 3: Intrinsic Motivation and Unschooling with Gina Riley, Ph.D.
This presentation explores the theories of Self-Determination, Cognitive Evaluation, and Intrinsic Motivation as it applies to unschooling and self directed learning. Because of curriculum and time constraints, intrinsic motivation may be difficult to facilitate within the traditional classroom. However, one of the most impressive strengths of unschooling is that the entire process revolves around a child or teen’s intrinsic motivation to learn. Let’s explore the power that intrinsically motivated, self directed learning provides.
