The energy of a good class

I was just thinking about the feelings or the sensation you have when you are giving a good class. I think the idea of flow explains this feeling. According to Csíkszentmihály Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity” Being in class with your students is like dancing to a contagious rhythm . So connecting flow, music, the sensation I have during and after a good class, I decided to share this song that for me, at least, translates the sensation of flow.

Dear José,

I also believe in the concept of flow and that´s why I love teaching! And the song you chose is perfect for this uplifting feeling.

Hi Carla,

Flow is a great idea, isn't it? And as they say "Once a teacher, always a teacher."
Have a great day

Hi JA. This is a great song with great musicians. It does translate this feeling that flow brings to our classes. By the way, how do you insert a video in a blog?

Hello Domingos,
This song really translates flow. I just love listening to it.
To insert a video in blogger blogs is really simple. You just have to find the video you want in youtube. On the right of the video window there are two links. You just have to copy the one that says EMBED and paste it in the post you are writing, click publish and presto, you have a post with a video.
For posterous, you have to copy the URL link and post with the post you are writing and presto again.
Thanks a lot for your comment.
Good luck.
