Motivation and feedback

My favourite words.

First is chased by educators after they’ve managed to make their students lose it. I was wondering whether we should make our games for even younger than 12 year olds. They still have their built-in curiosity unkilled. Yeah, the big misconceptions, “we can motivate or we can teach”.

Second is promoted by all who does not receive it at all. Mostly by teachers (I’m talking of the situation in my home country), but should not we forget other state administrators (when did you see anyone actually got caught doing something in a wrong way) and most importantly politicians (if democracy comes up in your mind as the smallest possible bad thing, read more history). Key points on the latter at Downes, again.
