I created a project about my personal learning philosophy. I created a PPT in Office and I uploaded with http://www.knovio.com/ I call my theory, theory of interest and awareness. I hope you agree with me, even a little. It is the first time you used this online program, so my project is not a big deal, but I promise you that the second time I use it, it will be better.

I also included information such as my personal learning style and my multiple intelligences. It is very important to know your own learning style. It will be much easier to learn, if you know your style. The human brain is unique, each head is a world, and it is for this reason that although humans have the same brain structure, each person receives information in different ways. By the way, I agree with the results I got. I am an auditory learner, I have to work on my concentration when I read and in my multiple intelligences, I’m surprised, because I got a very similar percentage in each intelligence, the difference is very little, except linguistic.
You can also take the tests, if your want to know your personal learning style.

I found this fabulous video of an English class. I am personally fascinated. I had never seen a teacher, received with music, to their students. It’s an amazing idea; it is like to encourage them to listen to music and sing in English. The classroom is very well decorated, creating a pleasant and orderly atmosphere. This is very important because students feel relaxed in a calm and fun space. The teacher treats them as friends and not as students, he gives them security and confidence. Students come to the classroom and take their place, after, they preparing themselves the activity in the white board to start the game. Apparently, the methods of the teacher are good, because the guys seem to speaking in English.
I made a comparison on a Venn diagram, where I write on one side what motivational strategies the teacher used and on the other side what strategies I would use as the teacher of that same class.
Is a bit hard to say, other motivational strategies because the teacher in this video applies several, not all strategies appear in the video, but it makes me imagine that he applies all. He puts challenges and encourages students through a fun class. For me he does a very good job.

Finally, it seems important to me to mention which are the motivational strategies.
- The teacher
- The classroom atmosphere
- The task
- Personal relevance
