How do our relationships act as a key to unlocking the FLOW potential in our environment?
In every classroom there is a balance of power that impacts the likelihood of students experiencing Flow at school. Through our behaviors, routines, and interactions, students understand how much control an individual teacher needs. In this workshop we will consider the idea of giving up some of the control. By giving the students more control over what happens (agency), they are more likely to encounter a state of Flow during their learning journey. This resulting state of Flow yields greater engagement, productivity and efficiency, and thus a greater overall experience for the learner. Participants will reflect on their own behaviors, routines and biases as they look to make changes that give each learner more agency in the classroom.
