great points on cooperative learning, good that you talked about how it is helpful in a social context, learning isn’t only about self paced studies but it is about interactions with one another secondly some great points on how we psychological are motivated, since motivation is a very important factors into the learning design, without it, it would be hard to learn no matter how good the teaching skills are. also to say that competition is another one that sparks motivation, which people don’t really think of much, as learning is a journey of self improvement but also a journey of competition. not only competitions, corporation are also a really great point as well that people misses out on, since the environment is really what determines our learning outcome and we have to work and engage with the environment to get the best learning result, this is really fantastic point!
