Nine Perspectives on What Motivates Learning. A Companion Guidebook to the Video: Demonstrating Learning Motivations in Adolescents Using the Enneagram.
The Enneagram is a model of human consciousness. It describes each of the nine strategies that people adopt to understand the world and others. This guidebook is intended to be used with the video of the same name, which describes the nine perspectives on learning. The book provides a Type-related context to the comments made by the students on the video. The reader will find background information to the video: brief introductions to the system, to the Types, and to the three centers of inner perception. The placement of attention of each Type are examined; these Types are intrinsically related to learning style. For those with knowledge of the system, this book is a useful illustrative guide to the video. For those who do not know the system well, but want to introduce the Enneagram to others, this guidebooks is a simple first step. Those unaware of the system should consult with the author before using the video and this book. The common vocabulary and common framework provided by the Enneagram makes it particularly effective in the classroom in understanding teaching styles, learning styles, and with communication in general.
