Social Environmental Support, Motivation, Social Intensity, And Student Motivation.


The aim of this article is to provide an overview of the types of social environmental support and types of motivation among students. This article is based on previous research studies. The methodology of this article utilizes a systematic review and Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) approach with information search on social environmental support and motivation encompassing journals and electronic references. For the search of electronically published journal articles related to social environmental support, two journal databases, namely Scopus and Web of Science, were used. The results of previous studies have found that social environmental support itself has a significant impact on motivation. Suggestions for future writing should explore the forms or types of social environmental support that can stimulate internal motivation. This is because internal motivation drives students to learn or behave well without any external rewards.
