The changes in learning theory and the topicality of the recent research on motivation
Learning and Instruction Volume 9, Number 1 ISSN 0959-4752 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
The aim of this paper is to consider the motivational basis of learning in a constructivist framework. It is our assumption that understanding the construction of a learner's motivation requires more detailed and integrated argumentation than researchers in the field of constructivist learning theories have recently presented. We also discuss new ideas of learning research, such as learning environment and situated learning. Furthermore, we examine the relevancy of the current research on motivation from theoretical and methodological points of view.
