What is your Motivation to Learn?
“When are we going to really use this information in real life?”
Education starts from birth as we try to figure out how to eat, crawl, and overcome challenges. Formal education is through guided instruction to help problem solve life demands (e.g. reading, communicating, and logic). For the toddler they are motivated to get out of the crib and see the world. Formal education wants to promote a students desire to expand and explore the world. Sometimes the student is challenged by their internal ability to effectively process. Sometimes the educational institution expects its student to learn in a certain way which forces the student back into “the crib” and results in apathy and behavior problems.
How are your neurons working?
“I know what I want to say but I don’t know how to say it!”
The question is not whether you want to learn rather that you are having problems learning. If this is you, we can help.
