Paying Attention Is a Skill: Schools Need to Teach It | Brain Research and Learning | Scoop.it
There is no doubt that “diminished attention” is a correct diagnosis of the intellectual temperament of our age. I see it to a greater degree each year even in the students I teach, who are among the very best that our high schools have to offer.

Habits: How They Form And How To Break Them : NPR

Habits: How They Form And How To Break Them : NPR | Brain Research and Learning | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"It turns out that every habit starts with a psychological pattern called a "habit loop," which is a three-part process. First, there's a cue, or trigger, that tells your brain to go into automatic mode and let a behavior unfold.

 

"Then there's the routine, which is the behavior itself," Duhigg tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "That's what we think about when we think about habits."

 

"The third step, he says, is the reward: something that your brain likes that helps it remember the "habit loop" in the future."

donhornsby's curator insight, May 31, 2013 7:22 AM

(From the article): On breaking habits

 

"What we know from lab studies is that it's never too late to break a habit. Habits are malleable throughout your entire life. But we also know that the best way to change a habit is to understand its structure — that once you tell people about the cue and the reward and you force them to recognize what those factors are in a behavior, it becomes much, much easier to change."
