Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates UsDrive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I usually start twitching when business management models are applied to schools, but Daniel Pink’s observations about motivation are highly transferable to educational settings. Autonomy, mastery, and purpose are important qualities to develop in both teachers and students.

Drive, taken with Pink’s earlier A Whole New Mind, shows those involved in education how to think about, navigate, and maximize the opportunities for schools, students, and teacher in the present and coming decades.

I’ll have more to say about these ideas in upcoming blog posts.
