Active learning is all about motivation
00:09
and the will to learn from experiences.
00:20
Rather than be motivated by wanting to please others,
00:24
it's about feeling really pleased with yourself
00:26
when you achieve something you've tried hard at.
00:29
Wow!
00:32
Essential to this is being able to control
00:34
your own emotions, specifically in response
00:37
to learning something difficult.
00:51
Active learning is closely linked with self-regulation,
00:54
which is partly about the ability to be in control
00:57
of your own learning.
