Motivation

Here is an interesting video on motivation. The three keys to motivating people are, according to the video 1)autonomy 2)mastery 3) purpose, and not monetary rewards. I think that this argument should be used in union negotiations, especially with the teachers’ union, which regularly threatens to go on strike here in Vancouver.

On a more serious note, I believe that these three elements are important motivators, especially when it comes to language learning.
