Motivation applied in Education

© Encourage Students
     Students look to teachers for approval and positive reinforcement, and are more likely to be enthusiastic about learning if they feel their work is recognized and valued. Praise your students often. Recognize them for their contributions.
© Provide opportunities for success.
     Students, even the best ones, can become frustrated and demotivated when they    feel like they're struggling or not getting the recognition that other students are. Make sure that all students get a chance to play to their strengths and feel included and valued. It can make a world of difference in their motivation.
© Make it social. 
Put together a learning group, or have students find learning partners with whom they can share their moments of discovery and points of confusion
©  Get Them Involved.
 One way to encourage students and teach them responsibility is to get them involved in the classroom. Make participating fun by giving each student a job to do. Give students the responsibility of tidying up or decorating the classroom. Assign a student to erase the blackboard or pass out materials.
©  Offer Incentives.
Setting expectations and making reasonable demands encourages students to participate, but sometimes students need an extra push in the right direction. Offering students small incentives makes learning fun and motivates students to push themselves.. Rewards give students a sense of accomplishment and encourage them to work with a goal in mind.
