The strategy that is used is that the students perceive the benefits of learning in the short term through the acquisition of knowledge and skills that are conducive to the realization of a productive activity. This last point is illustrated in the Conference through Steven, a young man who spent three years living on the streets of Nairobi then that their parents had died of AIDS and the that was achieved to attract the school through teaching the craft of woodworking. This kind of work is cost-effective for youth within the context in which they live so there is a motivation of wanting to learn the skills that help you to make a profit. The second point, intrinsic motivation, refers to that students will be attracted towards learning if this relates to interests that have each of these. No sense deliver knowledge and skills which are conducive to perform a productive activity and obtain its benefits in the short term, when young people have access to illicit activities that allow them to obtain higher profits in less time. Due to the above is that teaching should be interesting for students. With this I do not mean to fool them so that they show a fake interest in learning an area in particular, as normally happens in schools.
On the contrary, consists in that what is taught must take into account the tastes and preferences of the children and young people. It is as easy as asking what interests them and be a contribution to the knowledge and experience that one possesses, or just answer questions they formulate. It is the only way that this works. To summarize, learning is achieved through a strategy of attracting students to the knowledge. This is accomplished through the motivation to receive a benefit that is derived from the lessons learned and because this relates to their tastes or interests.
