For each source chosen you must complete one research notebook page. The guidelines for the research notebook are clearly outlined within the research notebook document. (more…)

This is Flow //

"Flow" occurs when our body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile. - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

This website documents the work of 60 juniors at the NYC iSchool as they develop their senior project proposals. From April - June 2011, they will be asking questions related to their areas of interest, engaging in research to advance their understanding of these areas, and proposing answers to these questions in the form of a research paper and final project. Our goal is to find our flow.
