As I read through chapters 1-3, I was particularly struck by the idea of “Ability +Interest=Flow” and what flow is. As both a teacher and a student, it is something that I seek. The lesson just doesn’t seem to feel right without it. For me, flow happens when I can get up and work with others and when I can apply what I am working with to something tangible, a real life situation. During graduate school, as we explored ourselves as learners, I discovered that I am a very experiential learner. The sensing side of me seems to take over as I learn and I struggle to retain information without immediately putting it to use. I suppose it makes sense, then, that I chose a graduate program whose entire philosophy focuses on Integrated and Project-Based learning! My biggest problem, both as a student and a teacher, is being organized enough to keep tract of everything that I am learning, or following through with every step of these projects!
