Self Determination Theory – The ABC of Motivation
'Edward Deci and Richard Ryan have developed the ‘Self Determination Theory or the 'ABC of Motivation' and tell us that Autonomy, Belonging and Competence are inherent psychological needs just as water, food and oxygen are inherent Physiological needs of all human beings - even our very youngest. Autonomy has become my favourite word lately as I explore what that means for children and teachers in ECE settings. Join me in understanding how children and teachers need for autonomy in early childhood education can be met along with belonging and competence, and how children's enthusiasm for learning, confidence in their own capabilities and dispositions manifest from being intrinsically motivated.’
