What is motivation for learning? How does it work? How can we influence it in the classroom? This session will offer a framework of 5 big ideas from the evidence on motivation plus 5 key strategies we can use to boost attention and effort in the classroom. We draw on evidence from a range of fields—from cognitive science to behavioral economics—and will explore the influence of factors such as success, social norms, belonging, and student autonomy.


Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the 5 big ideas from the research around motivation for learning
  • Grasp the 5 most powerful strategies for building intrinsic motivation in school
  • Discover how we can apply these ideas to motivate ourselves and our students
