Is the lack of motivation to learn a lack of internal drive or external motivation? Although the field of education is now largely unanimous that both factors are essential, I lean more towards external motivation.


I recognize the importance of personal self-discipline. This is because, in terms of the nature and goal of learning, learning is essentially a process of improving the quality of one's thinking, and learning is most effective when it is done through self-motivation. In addition, in terms of the feasibility of self-drive, modern science, technology and knowledge accumulation can already provide enough material for self-study. For example, GRE preparation. In the past ten years, we could only memorize GRE words by memorizing dictionaries, but now, with the help of big data, some memorization software has been able to effectively count the words that appeared in the test questions to effectively reduce the number of words students need to memorize, and the convenience of this process, resulting in more students are more willing to study the GRE on their own.Finally, in terms of the effect of self-motivated learning, it is even more attractive. People. It is mainly manifested in the following aspects. First, self-disciplined people are able to set clear learning goals for themselves and make appropriate learning plans for their goals. Secondly, self-disciplined people have a strong determination that enables them to keep working towards the set goals. Third, self-disciplined students have an intelligent way of working. While there are always some people who have exceptional determination and perseverance, such people are actually just as few as the extremely smart ones. Most people are bound to lose motivation if they are always frustrated in the learning process. Lack of good learning methods, blind efforts, is likely to encounter serious bottlenecks, efforts but not progress, and eventually lose motivation. Therefore, self-discipline also includes the ability to consciously and reflectively change learning methods to find more effective learning strategies.


However, while it is true that learning is an individual act and a personal need, we should not forget that learning is also about enabling students to better integrate into society, so learning and education are necessarily influenced externally by the social environment and needs of the community. In addition to this, students will not be able to develop a perfect learning plan and master perfect learning methods out of thin air. Therefore, the input of external motivation is crucial. Firstly, it is crucial that the teacher provides the right knowledge and adopts the right teaching methods, which involves the teacher being able to take into account the student's specific characteristics, adopt motivational strategies that fit the student's personality, and develop a learning path that fits the student's abilities. Secondly, peer pressure is also a very important factor in motivation, which is why parents want to send their children to a good school. People around them are actively trying to learn, and this environment usually provides a positive influence on an individual's motivation as well. Again, communication between the school and the family is actually an essential step in enabling the school to better understand the student's personality. This is because the family also has a key influence on the student's motivation, and if there is a disconnect between what the family is trying to do and what the school is trying to do, teaching usually does not produce good results.
