advanSR motivates by the proven concept of combining both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, through the principles of Self Determination Theory.
Intrinsic learning, Self Determination Theory (SDT);
Competence = mastering skills (or behaviors)
Autonomy = a feeling of choice (choosing to display the behaviors requested)
Relatedness = social connection (game leaderboard, peer interaction)
Badges, points, scoreboard, etc.
Students have fun, earn rewards and are motivated both intrinsically and extrinsically as they advance through their advanSR Quest levels (gamification!), by attending school, completing assignments, and participating in extra-curricular activities. Additionally, points earned are redeemed for rewards. More Quest levels = more points = more rewards = more student success.
