Carrots and sticks: What motivates people?

September 14th, 2010

Today I came across this highly engaging, remarkably rendered video. It’s an illustrated animated version of a talk by Dan Pink, about drive, or “what motivates us”.

I urge you to watch this. The talk is set in the context of what motivates and drives adults in the workplace. However I was thinking about how these ideas apply equally to learners in schools. Wouldn’t it be interesting to create a parallel story to this which talks about learners and learning, and the kinds of incentives (extrinsic and intrinsic) that we do or don’t provide for students in our current schooling approaches? How would that story go? I’d love to hear your thoughts…..
