What is the thing that motivates you?

04 Oct

This is my second reflection of the second meeting in MMSEL course. The interesting thing that I liked in the second meeting is Ms. Lydia try to remember all of her students in my class. I like the way she did. Finally, she success to recalled our name. After that, she asked us to make “gallery walk” about the theory that we have discussed in the previous meeting. My group consists of Jonathan, Hanna, Fitri, and me. We discussed about cognitive theory, and when the “gallery walk” one of us stay to present our work and two of us stray to observe and listened for other group’s explanation. Hanna was ill and didn’t come to the class on the previous week.

The next activities, Ms. Lydia explained us about Maslow’s theory. This theory told us about 5 levels hierarchy of needs such as, Physiological Needs. This level is about the motivation that comes from our cloth (sandang), food (pangan), and place (papan) needs. The second level is about Safety Needs. This level told us about a motivation that comes from the need to have assurance of safety, serenity and peace. The third level is about Belongingness and Love Needs, which the motivation comes from our needs of love, friendship, and togetherness. The fourth level is about Esteem Needs, which the motivation comes from needs to be appreciated and recognized by others. And the last level is Self-Actualization Needs. This is told us about the motivation that comes from needs to develop ourselves (e.g. Hobby, passion, etc.).

After that activity, Ms. Lydia gave us some article about the theory of Self-Determination and Self-Worth that influence students’ motivation. Self-Determination is divided into 3, such as: Competence, Autonomy, and Relatedness Needs. We are asked to read those articles by ourselves. Then we shared it to our group, and created a role play about one topic in those articles. Our group creates a role play about Relatedness. Through this activity, I become more understand about the theory that influence student and our motivation.

Thanks 🙂

    Yeah, I agree with your statement, “Through this activity, I become more understand about the theory that influence student and our motivation”. By doing and watching role play I could directly learn how these need influence someone determination. I hope in next session there will be activity similar like this, so we could learn by doing directly. Not only sit and hear/read material paper.

    I agree with you and huda.
    Learning or studying will be boring if the activities only sit on our seat, reading, writing and listening to the teacher.
    I feel more comfortable and motivated if the activities are more fun and various. The activities also must make me explore the materials deeper than I only read it or write it. In other words, the activities is not only fun but also meaningful.

    Nowadays, say good bye to “duduk rapih, tangan dilipat di atas meja” when you learn at the class.
    Let’s apply learning by doing into our teaching method. 🙂
