Education psychologists have proven that rewards and awards in terms of motivation (theory, research and application), lead to successful learning outcomes and achievements, for school aged pupils.
Teachers at every education key stage are fully cognisant of this effective strategy.
We all need positive reinforcement and rewards. Whether or not we are consciously aware of it, reinforcement is the reason we continue to do many things. Even as adults, we look for positive reinforcement to extend our motivation to do things. School children are even more susceptible and complicit with such an approach. This will usually further enhance personally empowering academic or sporting success.
What school trophies and awards and rewards can a teacher offer?
Dr. Nellie Deutsch, who has a doctorate in educational leadership with a specialisation in curriculum, technology, and instruction, says:
“The rewards may come in the form of a grade (number, letter), words, badges, stickers, certificates, medals, trophies, money, or prizes. The rewards may be determined by peer, self, or teacher-based assessments. Rewards are a way to motivate students to learn.”
(Dr. Nellie Deutsch. 2013)
