Report on Wlodkowsky's 2008, Enhancing Adult Motivation to learn: A Comprehensive Guide for Teaching AllAdults (3rd. Ed.)

Wlodkowsky's Approach to Learning and Neuroscience to improve learning utilizing maximum motivation.

Wlodkowsky's approach to motivation and learning has evolved since his 1995 book on Motivation. This book is an excellent read an involves the present day issues of cultural inclusion and neuroscience. Neuroscience advances daily and with the abilities researchers have to know which parts of the brain are being activated in majorities of people and specifically if necessary in every individual.

The focus that Wlokowdky(2008), discusses involves how the brain learns. As educators this information is necessary for us to tailer our teaching and strategies to match the truth about brain science. We need to forget the myths and best attempt approaches at teaching motivation in schools to help adults learn and hit the mark right on the head with the neuroscience approach of speaking truthfully, factually, and with evidentiary support. Therefore, Wlodkowsky(2008) discusses Ratey, 2001 and his "biological perspective , motivation is a process that determines how much energy and attention the brain and body assign to a given stitulus--whether it's a thought coming oin or a situation that contronts one" (Ratey, 2001, p. 247 in Wlodkowsky, 2008, Kindle edition Location 220.
