Punished by Rewards

Author: Alfie Kohn
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
ISBN: 0547526156
Release Date: 1999-09-30
Genre: Family & Relationships

The basic strategy we use for raising children, teaching students, and managing workers can be summarized in six words: Do this and you'll get that. We dangle goodies (from candy bars to sales commissions) in front of people in much the same way we train the family pet. Drawing on a wealth of psychological research, Alfie Kohn points the way to a more successful strategy based on working with people instead of doing things to them. "Do rewards motivate people?" asks Kohn. "Yes. They motivate people to get rewards." Seasoned with humor and familiar examples, Punished By Rewards presents an argument unsettling to hear but impossible to dismiss.

Drive

Author: Daniel H Pink
Publisher: Ecowin
ISBN: 9783711050786
Release Date: 2010-09-13
Genre: Political Science

Sind wir nicht alle davon überzeugt, dass wir am besten mit äußeren Anreizen wie Geld und Prestige oder durch „Zuckerbrot und Peitsche" zu motivieren sind? „Alles falsch", sagt Daniel H. Pink in seinem provokanten und zukunftsweisenden Buch. Das Geheimnis unseres persönlichen Erfolges ist das zutiefst menschliche Bedürfnis, unser Leben selbst zu bestimmen, zu lernen, Neues zu erschaffen und damit unsere Lebensqualität und unsere Welt zu verbessern. Daniel H. Pink enthüllt die Widersprüche zwischen dem, was die Wissenschaft weiß, und dem, was die Wirtschaft tut – und wie genau dies jeden Aspekt unseres Lebens beeinflusst. Er demonstriert, dass das Prinzip von Bestrafung und Belohnung exakt der falsche Weg ist, um Menschen für die Herausforderungen von Heute zu motivieren, egal ob in Beruf oder Privatleben. In „Drive" untersucht er die drei Elemente der wirklichen Motivation – Selbstbestimmung, Perfektionierung und Sinnerfüllung – und bietet kluge sowie überraschende Techniken an, um diese in die Tat umzusetzen. Daniel H. Pink stellt uns Menschen vor, die diese neuen Ansätze zur Motivation bereits erfolgreich in ihr Leben integriert haben und uns damit entschlossen einen außergewöhnlichen Weg in die Zukunft zeigen.

Feel bad Education

Author: Alfie Kohn
Publisher: Beacon Press
ISBN: 9780807001400
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Education

This book is a collection of published essays on education by Alfie Kohn since 2005. For his education audience that makes up the majority of his enthusiastic readership, it's a very attractive collection. The essays arguably take on the biggest issues facing school reform today by questioning very fundamental premises about what motivates learning and what the real goals of education are. The title essay, "Feel-Bad Education: The Cult of Rigor and the Loss of Joy" is typical in the way it cuts through the layers of bureaucratic language surrounding education to get to the heart of the enterprise. Kohn is unapologetically partisan, but inviting and accessible. His critiques are sharp, smart, and multi-dimensional. Kohn argues that traditional approaches to praise and punishment, testing and ranking, undermine real learning and genuine creation of strong-minded, independent thinkers. In this book he takes on the destructive effects of those who think they are defending "rigour", where progressive efforts to reform schools should go, and the motivational psychology of teaching and parenting.

Reusing Open Resources

Author: Allison Littlejohn
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135040048
Release Date: 2014-07-17
Genre: Education

Every day, learners use and reuse open, digital resources for learning. Reusing Open Resources offers a vision of the potential of these open, online resources to support learning. The book follows on from Reusing Online Resources: A Sustainable Approach to E-learning. At that time focus was on the creation, release and reuse of digital learning resources modeled on educational materials. Since then the open release of resources and data has become mainstream, rather than specialist, changing societal expectations around resource reuse. Social and professional learning networks are now routine places for the exchange of online knowledge resources that are shared, manipulated and reused in new ways, opening opportunities for new models of business, research and learning. The goal of this book is to extend the debate of how open, online resources might support learning across diverse contexts. Twenty-four distinguished experts from nine countries distributed across Europe and North America contribute empirical evidence and ideas. Collectively they provide a vision of the potential of open, online resources to support learning across everyday contexts of education, work and life.
