The Motivated School

How do motivators, motivate?
A set of tools that helps you think about motivation,
identifies the key engagement responses and optimal
learning climates that get the best out of learners.
      Solution Oriented Schools

  – People have the resources to make change possible
  – Endless possibilities
  – Knowing our strengths, skills and resources
• Creating optimal conditions

• Peer support model for managing low level
  indiscipline.
• Children’s behaviour is central to the teaching &
  learning process
• Behaviour problems are a product of a complex
  interaction of factors
• Importance of moving beyond a ‘within-child’
  approach – wider view effective, efficient and
  just
