BATISTA SILVA, Aliocha; GALVEZ ESPINOS, Maydel y HINOJOSA CUETO, Iliana. Historical rough outline on the main theories of motivations and its influence on teaching-learning process. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3038.
Present study account for a bibliographic review of the motivation area of teaching-educational process and its main objective is to reflect on thus subject. Motivation isn't an observable variable but a hypothetical feature deduced from the behavior manifestations and that inference may be correct or incorrect. Motivation, together with intelligence and the previous learning, determine if students will achieve the expected academic results or not, or rather, the motivation is means related to other objectives. The student is a active subject of learning, if the learning is revealing, there is a favorable attitude by student and thus a motivation as a unitarian process. One of the more relevant features of motivation is to arrive to a determined and preexisting behavior of student and that behavior be related to its future, in other words, the professor make that student to control its own production and that learning be motivating, process that in its essence is very complex and thus it is necessary to reflect and update the subject in question.
