Abstract: In this age of education reform in the online environment, time-tested theories of motivation offer a window into learning. Daniel Pink’s latest book Drive synthesizes the constructs of learning and reveals that Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose are the key ingredients to genuine motivation. This session magnifies the power of each concept with examples and demonstrations, including free web-based applications that will AMP up learner potential in the online environment.
