Learning

lifelong learningWhen Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi was at the University of Chicago I had the good fortune of hearing him speak at an inservice. He speaks about “flow,” the field of behavioral science examining connections between satisfaction and daily activities. This isn’t anything new: it’s the rhythm (or flow) that results when you’re involved in self-directed, self-controlled, goal-related, meaningful activities. You know – when you’re involved in something that is so absorbing that ‘you lose track of time.’

Good teachers know how to channel “flow” and their students benefit from being introduced to activities that engage them.

How do we provide those activities for our supplemental school students? How do we move Sunday school into that realm?

How can we use technology to further that goal?
