Transcript of Motivation

Extrinsic Motivation
Extrinsic motivation means that the individual's motivational stimuli are coming from outside. In other words, our desires to perform a task are controlled by an outside source. Note that even though the stimuli are coming from outside, the result of performing the task will still be rewarding for the individual performing the task.
Intrinsic Motivation
Intrinsic motivation means that the individual's motivational stimuli are coming from within. The individual has the desire to perform a specific task, because its results are in accordance with his belief system or fulfills a desire and therefore importance is attached to it.
Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation
Integrative motivation
When students want to learn a language to become part of a speech community (integrate). People who immigrate to new countries are some examples of people who may want to identify with the community around them. An important aspect of this form of language learning is using language for social interaction. This form of motivation is thought to produce success in language learners.
Instrumental motivation
Wanting to learn a language for the purpose of obtaining some concrete goals such as a job, graduation, or the ability to read academic materials.

where it comes from and what it is like
The importance of
When we want something badly enough, when we want to feel better about ourselves or when we want to know that other people like what we are doing, we get into a state of mind that provokes us into doing something. In other words, if we want something badly enough, we act on that desire. That state of mind is what we call motivation.
What is your definition of motivation?
Our deep-rooted desires have the highest motivational power. Below are some examples:

Acceptance: We all need to feel that we, as well as our decisions, are accepted by our co-workers.
Curiosity: We all have the desire to be in the know.
Honor: We all need to respect the rules and to be ethical.
Independence: We all need to feel we are unique.
Order: We all need to be organized.
Power: We all have the desire to be able to have influence.
Social contact: We all need to have some social interactions.
Social Status: We all have the desire to feel important.
Our desires coming from outside also have the motivational power. Below are some examples:
Oral praise
Teachers' approval/School approval
Tokens - stars, stickers, stamps
Students are far more likely to stay motivated if they think that their teacher cares about them - if their AFFECT (feeling) is positive.
Nothing succeeds like success, and students who succeed in language learning are far more likely to remain motivated than students who constantly fail.
Students are far more likely to remain motivated if they think their teacher has a professional attitude.
Students will always stay more motivated if we involve them in enjoyable and challenging ACTIVITIES.
Students are far more likely to remain motivated if they have AGENCY (that is, if they have some control over what is happening).
Because we believe that students should have agency, we encourage LEARNER AUTONOMY, where students do some or a lot of the work on their own.
