Education and business – the right mix?

A fantastic talk from Dan Pink about what motivates workers and illustrates how important it is to get the balance of monetary value and work right. This is particularly relevant with education being run as a business as the two rarely compliment each other and in many respects are detrimental to teaching and learning.

Another interesting aspect of this talk is the suggestion that praise and punishment are key motivators to elicit desired behaviour; it’s not as clear cut as it seems, particularly in a classroom setting.

Enjoy the video and let me know what you think.
