Liao, Hung-Chang; Wang, Ya-huei
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v1 n2 p53-58 2008
This paper describes the incorporation of Keller's ARCS (Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction) motivation model into traditional classroom instruction-learning process. Viewing that technological and vocational students have low confidence and motivation in learning, the authors applied the ARCS motivation model not only in the instructional design phase but also in the classroom instruction process of technological and vocational education. The purpose of the study is to demonstrate whether the application of ARCS motivation model to instructional design and classroom instruction of technological and vocational education could bring positive effects on students' satisfaction in terms of instruction objective, instruction material/method, teacher's qualities, class climate/environment, assessment, and overall satisfaction.
