Abstract

As illustrated in Chapter 2, and exemplified in the above quotation, motivation is widely seen by psychologists in intrapersonal terms, that is, as something residing within the individual. The seemingly unproblematic acceptance of a Cartesian dualism whereby mind is artificially separated from context (Prawat, 1998) is not a perspective that we share. Neither can we treat levels of the ecosystem in isolation, although for the purposes of conveying a complex account we isolate elements (students, peers, teachers etc.) in our initial analyses. Thus, this chapter seeks to highlight differences in student perspectives across the three milieux.
