“Help! My learner has trouble paying attention!”

This is one of the most common concerns that parents and teachers raise about their learners. Your ability to pay attention is a skill. Both adults and children are having an increasingly difficult time paying attention and sustaining attention, thanks particularly to our modern lifestyle with heavy technology use. And we can only expect this to worsen.

Having a solid attention span and focus is necessary for staying on task, successful learning, deep thinking and problem-solving. Gain the latest insights on why paying attention is so hard for the brain and learn strategies to help your learner develop stronger attention and focus.

Attend this webinar to:
• Understand why it is so hard for the brain to pay attention
• Learn why some learners focus easily while others struggle
• Uncover the key factors underlying the development of a strong attention span
• Take home 3 research-based strategies to help your learner (and yourself) build a more attentive brain.
