This cool hound was probably taught through a reward system and he was applauded at the markets.
Will any other dog stories emerge today? From time to time the blog accidentally parallels a local happening and I like to see any quirky connections although it is not good when a tragedy occurs.
In order to keep on task, learning theories explain how intrinsic rewards are important. They apply in the case of this blog. Extrinsic motivation is also identified.
Some opinion has it that money is a motivation that tends to have a motivational effect that lasts only a short period (on teaching staff for example).
Praise, respect, recognition and empowerment and a sense of belonging are far more powerful motivations than money. Is that so? The State treasurer would love this news. By how much will salaries be increased?
