Motivation and Engagement (LONG)

Almost a month ago I posted a “one page” overview of Engagement and Motivation (with respect to video games as constructivist learning environments). I’ve now fleshed out that page with supporting citations and quotes. These eight pages are meant to then appear as a section in the literature review of my dissertation.

Because I’m interested in seeking feedback early and often, I’d be grateful for any feedback any of you can offer at this stage. Below are links to the long version of the Motivation and Engagement section and to the reference list:

I’m especially interested in whether or not this seems like a good treatment of the subject, particularly in the context of a dissertation literature review – but I look forward to reading any other comments any of you might offer. :)
