How Schools Kill Motivation, and How to Regain it as an Adult with Dr. Peter Gray
Peter gray is a research psychologist, viral TEDx presenter, professor at Boston college, author, and a brilliant and controversial ( the best kind, eh?) learning theorist. Peter Grays’s research specializes in the role and importance of play in learning, and how non traditional student- driven educational environments effect students in the long term , like the Unschooling and Sudbury movements.
In this episode we jammed on a whole range of issues ranging from, if kids need school to become well educated ( Peter Gray’s research indicates that they don’t), to specific, and easy to implement, techniques for infusing a sense of play and intrinsic motivation in your every day adult life.
