Fun And Learning – Know Your Motivators

Motivation is important for learning.  What motivates you?  If you aren't sure, look at the activities you choose during your free time.

Now look at a subject in which you wish to increase your learning.  Match an activity that uses your best motivators with a learning skill.

If you like cooking and trying new foods you can scale recipes or calculate nutritional information to improve math skills.  Reading can be improved by reading cookbooks or cooking magazines.  A better understanding of science can explain why baking soda makes a fluffy cake.

So, choose a motivator and brainstorm ways to put learning into your favorite activities.
