Recess is a highly prized time in the eyes of a third grader. Last week on the playground, I encountered this group collaborating to create a snowman of human proportions. The sweet, joyous voices filled the air while the students lost themselves in play. I am a big proponent of the value of achieving flow while engaging in an activity (a theory proposed by James Paul Gee), whereby an individual is so engrossed, they cannot even account for the passage of time. What a wonderful experience.
