ConnectedPE - Professional Development for Physical Educators


Episode 10 - Nurturing Intrinsic Motivation with Ryan Ellis

August 19, 2016

During this episode of The ConnectedPE Podcast we explore a recording from the recent online conference. During the session I'm joined by Ryan Ellis of the PE Umbrella, who highlights the ever changing 'avatar' of children in primary/elementary schools of today and focus on how to guide students to intrinsically motivate themselves in Physical Education. 

Children are born naturally curious and self motivated to explore and seek answers. Where and when does this change? During the episode, Ryan will share ideas based on research that can help Primary and PE teachers continue nurturing intrinsic motivation amongst their students by focusing on three key areas in their lessons/teaching: Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose.
