I’ve been a great fan of Dan Pink since the time I stumbled upon his Tedtalk on The Puzzle of Motivation. His presentation helped me understand the crucial differences between extrinsic motivation and intrinsic motivation, how it could also be related to teachers and in education in general. Then I started reading Pink’s books like a maniac. And this slideshare is a result of reading his “A Whole New Mind”, twice. Even though the book focuses on the business world, there are a lot of insights for teachers like me on how to merge R-directed teaching/learning into the traditional L-directed teaching/learning.
If you’ve read this book too, let’s share some of the learnings.
