This is worth seeing.**

  1. The Youtube video about Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us that I’m linking to is a great talk about motivation that applies to kids just as well as adults. It is aimed at leaders of organizations, but it is a good talk itself. The subject is about reward systems and how the science shows that pay for performance works mostly with physical skills, but with cognitive skills it doesn’t work as many think. The focus instead is

    • autonomy
    • mastery
    • purpose
  2. The person who did the video based on the talk edited their cartoon drawings to match the speaker’s voice and timing. What an engaging method of delivering information! My kids might even watch something like this and get something from it. It is like a mind map happening at speaking-speed (from the viewer’s perspective). It is an engaging technique for video.
