Do you agree with the 10 principles Bonk and Khoo developed based on their review of ideas about motivation and learning?
Yes, I agree with this
What motivates? Tone/Climate: Psychological Safety, Comfort, Sense of Belonging Encouragement: Feedback, Responsiveness, Praise, Supports Curiosity: Surprise, Intrigue, Unknowns Variety: Novelty, Fun, Fantasy Autonomy: Choice, Control, Flexibility, Opportunities Relevance: Meaningful, Authentic, Interesting Interactivity: Collaborative, Team-Based, Community Engagement: Effort, Involvement, Investment Tension: Challenge, Dissonance, Controversy Yielding Products: Goal Driven, Purposeful Vision, Ownership
but maybe a better question is How do we make this happen in our schools and learning environments and how do we balance the need for creativity and learning with assessment? or maybe i just think that is better because that is what i am looking at at the moment. I think the above list of words, actions and beliefs works well both online and off and the purpose of the teacher is to " inspire an emotional reaction, not just for the (learning), but more importantly, for life." Bernstein said music but i think it applies to any subject, course inquiry online and off
I am loading this intro a second time as the original disappeared into a swirl of error messages when i tried to edit it to correct spelling and typos so her's hoping and damn the typos i so wsh i could right click and spell and grammar check like all programmeshave done for me for the past decade but whatever
Tell us a little about yourself and what you're hoping to learn/practice/build? Do you have an online learning activity (OLA) that you want to repurpose, improve, restructure? Or do you need to create something fresh to help students master a difficult concept or think critically about a journal article or video?

ps just seen Seymour about Bernstein by ethan hawke and these are the quotes i loved
"The most important thing that music teachers can do for their pupils is to inspire an emotional reaction, not just for the music, but more importantly, for life."
"The true essence of who we are resides in our talent - whatever talent we have."
"The people who don't want me to succeed for their own selfish reasons can't touch me."
"We sense in music a reflection of ourselves, a reminder of our own potential for perfection."
"I never dreamt that with my own two hands, I could touch the sky."
