leave a comment »

Finding alternatives to praise and rewards to motivate your teenage students.

Latest studies in social sciences suggest, surprisingly, that rewards and incentives do not work as well as you might believe. In this webinar, Herbert Puchta will show that if we want to fully engage our teenage students, we need to activate their brains’ intrinsic reward systems instead of using the traditional ‘stick and carrot’ approach still used in most classrooms around the world. Discover why praise, rewards and incentives often don’t work, and get to know what alternatives you can use that make a real difference.
