Watch this video about flow:

Quote from our co-collaborator, Kate Goodman: I look at, say, a preschooler making a mud pie and view that moment as all about flow and creativity. What’s going on in that environment? I can’t force students to have flow – I can only set the stage so it’s more likely to occur. I’m actually better at doing this for others than myself. (I’m very guilty of “doom scrolling” through social media these days. If there is a negative form of flow, that’s it! You know it’s making you feel worse and yet you can’t seem to stop…) So, in a nutshell, I want my students to feel free to make mud pies in my classes. They are fun, they learn something from them, and often they lead to a deeper understanding of something else, more durable.
