The unmotivated, dispassionate New Zealand adult learner... Think again!
A wonderful finding from my research – New Zealand adult learners are wonderfully passionate about mathematics and numeracy! They care… They complain bitterly when they have an answer wrong, they shout and cheer when they get answers correct and they chatter away to themselves when working on problems. All this wonderful energy and passion is at our disposal. Don’t ever think again that low achieving adult learners are not motivated. They are motivated.
