Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us. – D. Pink

Pink, Daniel. (2011) “Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us.” Video. RSA Animate. Retrieved from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc&safety_mode=true&persist_safety_mode=1&safe=active

RSA Animate created a catchy animation to coincide with best-selling author Daniel Pink’s research about motivation.  This is the reason merit pay for teachers simply won’t work especially when it’s tied to unreliable standardized test scores.

“Rewards are very effective for some things — simple things, mechanical things,” he (D. Pink) explains. “But for complicated jobs that require judgment and creativity, the evidence shows that it just doesn’t work very well.” Teaching, of course, is one of those jobs.  (Quote from Washington Post article on Pink.)  http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/as-teacher-merit-pay-spreads-one-noted-voice-cries-it-doesnt-work/2012/02/14/gIQAtRpsFR_story.html
