Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Flow, the secret to happiness - 0 views

  •  
    Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's Ted Talk about how the flow term is appeared. Beyond, how he started to deal with psychology and the only aim of him to find an answer to "What makes a life worth living?" He searched an answer at different area and find the best answer at psychology. Although he know nothing about Carl Jung, even he doesn't know the name of him (I am surprised to that); after participating at one of his conference; he affected and started to deal with psychology. Finally, after this studies, he appeared the term, 'flow'.

    I also add the most famous painting of Dali, persistence of memory. Because flow term remind me that painting. I think we are at our surreal world at the flow instance and also the time term is completely lost. http://www.dalipaintings.com/images/paintings/the-persistence-of-memory.jpg
  •  
    I like this painting of Dali! Although it can be commented in various ways, we can comment it from the point of view of flow theory like; in the flow moment you don't realize time flies until that moment ends. Thus, I agree with you that it really fits into distortion of sense of time.

    A webpage explaining a general overview of theories related to learning and motivation. You can scroll down to see the animation explaining the balance between skills and challenges.

    I liked this article because the figüre illustrating Maslow's hierarchy of needs was illustrative. The article differentiates btw mastery and performance goals. It emphasizes self efficacy and Weiner's Attribution theory and finally has a different figure for flow.

Eight Tips for Fostering Flow in the Classroom - 2 views

  •  
    It's every teacher's dream to have students who engage deeply with their lessons, want to learn for learning's sake, and perform at the top of their potential. In other words, teachers want their kids to find "flow," that feeling of complete immersion in an activity, where we're so engaged that our worries, sense of time, and self-consciousness seem to disappear.
  •  
    I liked this article because it adds more flow elements like making kids laugh, positive realationships, and relevancy of the task and choice

Welcome to Flow in Games - 1 views

    2300 years ago, Aristotle concluded that, more than anything else, men and women seek happiness..." - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (1990) In the last 30 years, as a form of entertainment, video games have evolved from confined arcade activities into a mature media.Video games have deeply infiltrated our daily life and our society. As if toys expanded every child's imagination, modern videogames take advantage of a player's active involvement to open more possibilities than any other existing mediums. [Wright 2006] More and more people grow up playing video games, treating them not only as an art form but also as serious media.

fire dancing and flow arts - 2 views

  •  
    This video is about fire dancing and the people who are telling their intrinsic motivation for it. I found it quiet interesting because it includes most elements of motivation theory. First of all, they have clear goals in every step. Also, they enjoy what they are doing and they get constant feedback. They have awareness and to be succesful they should not be distracted. The sense of time becomes distorted for them. I remember watching a fire dancing show in Barcelona and I was really surprised seeing people playing with fire so creatively. They were so immersed that they did not care anything happening around them. Now, it becomes more meaningful for me :) they were in a state of motivation.

how to motivate teachers? - 0 views

    We are always trying to find ways to motivate sts, but don't you think that it is high time for sts to start motivating their teachers?

    I think teacher motivation is so crucial Şermin, thanks for sharing this. We mostly experience this and I believe that teachers and students feed each other in terms of motivation. When the teachers are demotivated, it is hard to motivate students or vice versa.
  •  
    I think you touched such an important but sometimes ignored issue, teachers as learners should also be motivated for sure. thanks for making a recall on this :)
  •  
    Şermin, most of the time I need motivation to motivate the students for learning English:) And also, I question why we ask them to learn something they dislike. I agree with Burcu, when students are demotivated, teachers lose their motivation to teach. But, if they are intrinsically motivated, teaching becomes a joy. For example, I loved teaching to 4th graders. They had such a high level of motivation that I experienced the motivation while teaching them:)
  •  
    I also believe that teacher motivation is mutual.The two parties have to affect each other.Unfortunately we as teachers have to be the stimulators in our classes no matter how we feel during the day.One of the solution to keep teachers improve their skills and better their practises can be initiating positive school climate that is keeping teachers morale high by respecting their identity both as a teacher and valuable person in the community. Social parties,cookie-days can be alternative for teachers to have space to socialize, learn from each other and the sense of belongingness would enhance.It worked for some teachers that I worked with earlier.

  •

  •  
    I agree with Defne..Thank you Burcu for sharing..I always like this type of charts & tables summarizing the things..And I have felt closer to Harter's Effentance Motivation by the way.

games (I/we used to play) to keep flowed - 1 views

  •  
    I am sharing this video of kid games which are almost forgotten. Remember that as a kid, we used to keep flowed in physical space as well. It seems that for being flowed, computers or online tools are not the basic sources.
  •  
    I agree..there was fun, cooperation, challege..we were all flowed..too focused to think of time...I'm not sure whether we were cognitively engaged :-), but we had total flow to do the same things again and again...

    Computer games are the most common tools to keep us "flowed". So, What makes a good computer game?

    As I was reading about call of duty and flow, I again recognised that there is a distinct difference among genders ;)

    My father has been playing bridge online. He is one of the late adopters to technology, yet, he plays bridge for hours and hours without realising what is happening around himself. He has played bridge online for 6000 hours since 2007. I just asked him "why are you playing", he said, "because I have fun" and "because it is challenging" and "I get points". Well, he just covered the flow theory and games :)

    It is a nice movie and a nice illustration of the flow theory:) thanks for sharing it...
  •  
    Actually, I really like the last verses of him; I am pretty tired, I think I'll go home now:) Because that is the way I feel when I really get tired of doing something even if the activity is in my flow channel :)
  •  
    So let's hope that we will have this tireness just in the end of this 'long run' of EDS542 ;)
  •  
    I really liked your share on this movie. This made me think of some example movies, in Dekalog 1 movie, there was this little boy who continually asked questions on life's big issues, trying to figure out meaning. His learning motivation was so high, maybe that can be an additional example :)
  •  
    Kiewslovski movie! I especially like the scene when father and son calculate whether the son could skate safely or not. He has a great deal of curiosity and father leads his motivation via scientific methods;)
  •  
    definitely Sinem :)) you summarized the kid's motivation and situation very well :))
