This TED Talk is going to change my teaching practice.
This guy (Dan Pink) argues that there's more potential to our creative energy when the motivated by a sense of altruism as opposed to cash incentives. If this is true, then there are some big-ass cracks in the pillars of Capitalism and economic theory.
Regardless, it definitely has implications for my classroom and how I structure my program. It validates "service-learning" projects where students are involved in problem-solving local issues and actively taking part in finding and implementing solutions.
Gonna look more into that, for sure.
Check it out, though! It may be the reason why you do this social networking thing and make tons of content for free (well..partly the reason... ;o)
