I hit a state of flow in my teaching today. For those that don’t know, flow is neatly explained in this TED talk (link).
I got lost in the lesson. Everything seemed to work. Why? The topic was interesting, and this great resource from Kurk Gesagt’s In a Nutshell series kicked it off (link). The video on What is Life? What is Death? stimulated so much debate it was unreal.
At one moment during the lesson, I looked out and what I saw amazed me. Some students were talking about AI. Some were writing blog posts on “What is life?”. Some were simply learning definitions. Some were adding to their padlets. All were engaged and moving forward with their learning.
As I go forward in my teaching, I want to make moments like these the norm. How do we do this on a regular basis…that is the question?
