The Need to Motivate
Today's focus for our Professional Learning Group was to create a short Explainer video with a focus on our teaching inquiry.
Students' motivation is low in my Year 12 PE class in particular, and I am currently strategising how to improve this. Throughout my research and evidence gathering I have discovered a lack of motivation is a byproduct of a lack of self efficacy, a lack of self belief.
Check out my basic Explainer Video... Bare in mind I am still learning! Please leave any suggestions/strategies you have for me to increase student motivation and self efficacy. I think this is linked closely with students' self esteem issues, as I discussed in my previous blog post.
