We have to understand the need of motivation. inspiration and guidance in classroom teaching to make the teaching more effective.

What the needs of motivations in education are?

Motivation is a very strong factor for the educators to educate the people. If the motivation is powerful and strong, the rest of process will be easy and comfortable. Students affect from the different factors. They attracts by different things. If they find anything attractive and useful, they pay a proper attention but if they feel anything useless they get tired and bored. So a proper motivation moves them to grasp the lesson carefully and seriously. In a school or college we see that the students like the specific teachers because those teachers always use the interesting presentation and sometimes he maintains the pleasant personality.

What are the creative motivational skills in a traditional school or an institution? There are a lot of innovative and creative ideas to apply. Inspirational songs, visiting activities (Learning by visiting: Learning outside the school and Visiting inside the school), educational excursions, co curricular activities, Nice Thoughts (Nice Thoughts: An innovative idea), children fair (Bal Mela) and so many.

Teaching is an art. A teacher like an artist paints on the canvas that comprises the minds of his students. The impression of a teacher is long lasting, especially on younger students. Thus, a teacher must act as motivator, role model and a friend.
