The Impact of Motivation on Learning
The paper presents a motivational module that is founded on the vast number of motivational theories. However, in addition, the module has been formulated on concepts that have been derived from the Quran and Teachings of the Prohpet. As such, this module precribes a strong Islamic perspective to the notion of motivation which is a hypothetical construct that has indicated its impact on the process of learning. The components of the motivational module are described and the nature of its implementation by both the teachers and the learners to ensure its effectiveness, is discussed. Essentially the components of the module can be "converted" into a formula which portrays the definition of motivation namely the need to have goals, the need to know how to energize oneself to learn and very importantly, to know how to persist and sustain one's quest to attain the goals. A number of different activities created for the module have already been tried out in motivational programmes and have shown success. These activities have been created for different age groups.
