Marc Gamble – Amy Fara Fowlers attempt to woo Sheldon Cooper

I loved Dr. Larson’s clip from Big Bang Theory (BBT) as I have been a fan since it debuted. When I have time to watch television, I usually scan for BBT. I was watching one night last week that I believe demonstrates the constructivist learning theory.

Amy Fara Fowler attempt to speed up the progression of her relationship with Sheldon Cooper by using cues that bring up past memories in an attempt to transfer those good memories to her. She uses her contextual knowledge of Sheldon’s past experiences and attempts to recontextualize them so that she is then part of a new context of those experiences.

I hope I haven’t missed it completely.

A Blog a Day?

I’ve heard the adage that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. What would a blog a day do? Curious question, but not a reality in my life. I know bloggers that have carved out a living sharing daily wit, wisdom, and other information. They blog regularly, at least three times a week. I cannot generate content like that. During March 2012, I attended a conference in my field and workshops specifically on blogging. I was fortunate enough to meet one of my favorite bloggers, Jon Acuff. Here is a  link to one of his blogs Stuff Christians Like. It is a humorous look at the idiosyncrasies of religious folks and the churches we attend. Having worked in United Methodist churches and organizations for the past 24 years, I have become a bit jaded. I’ve earned it and appreciate Mr. Acuff’s light-hearted look at people who take themselves so seriously.
