About the webinar
This session demonstrates two approaches that stimulate teenagers’ motivation to learn:
- Flow theory – helps us create the classroom conditions for intrinsic motivation to flourish.
- ‘The random factor’ (that is, exploiting activities based on an absurd premise) – takes away students’ fear of the wrong answer, and encourages critical and creative thinking.
