Motivation as the First Priority of Success in Learning Process

Motivation as the first priority of success in learning process
In my opinion, motivation can be defined as the internal factor of human which highly stimulate them to do something. However, other factors (such as teacher, the lesson, and student condition) may influence whether motivation will be reduced or improved. Related to the students, high motivation will lead them to a better learning atmosphere. It brings students to be more enthusiastic in the teaching-learning process. Their desire of learning is improved through the pupils’ motivation.
Motivation comes from student’s internal condition. However, it can be influenced by some external factor, such as family condition, teacher, book, and friend. Besides, students need positive stimulants that may improve their motivation, especially in learning. They may enjoy in their learning process when having good physical condition. Giving students enough food nutrients can be a solution for their health.
Due to the importance of motivation, teacher as the students’ facilitator takes the urgent role of increasing students’ motivation. Teacher may create a fun and interesting teaching-learning program without ignoring the main objectives of the lesson. It seems hard to do but it’s really important. Teacher can use not only text book, they can create fun activities such as games, or use other teaching tools, such as picture, flash cards, etc. It may attract students’ interest and give them motivation to learn the material.
Students dislike to learn in pressure and they enjoy the positive learning. Teacher can help students to learn by adjusting their teaching method. However, they shouldn’t lose their power as teacher. If they find trouble makers, teachers can give proper punishment. Some constraints in the class must be clear and pupils have to respect to them. In the contrary, for the students who are successfully done teacher tasks may achieve reward. The reward can be additional score, approbation, achievement star, etc. Teacher may give reward to students to make a competition and it will increase their motivation in learning.
Since motivation is very important to determine the success of teaching and learning process in the class, the motivation of learning have to be improved through fun and joyful learning. Besides, students itself need to pay attention to their physical condition. A better students’ health will make them able to attend the lesson well.

Well, amongst the so many ways to pump up students' motivation to take part actively in the process of teaching and learning, I will offer you two more tips.

First, every single teacher should try to make relations, connections, and link between the subject that he/she and his/her students are discussing and the real life they face from tie by time.

Students will get much more interested in a subject when they find that the subject is talking about their interest, and also about their local context, such as their socio-cultural neighbourhood context.

Secondly, teacher should make his/her subject be applicable to students' daily life.

Remember, we take part in the teaching and learning process so that we can make the theory comes real in the real life.

We learn economics because we hope for a better economic welfare.

We learn English because we want to be able to communicate in English, not just than knowing its grammar but no real implication at all.

Best regards,
