Howard Rheingold's curator insight, May 24, 2013 2:37 PM

Attentional intelligence is only logical -- it is easier to perform mental tasks when you are able to switch to focal attention and stay there during the task. Although IQ is presumed to be relatively unchangeable, metacognitive capabilities such as strengthened ability to switch to focal attention and stay there appear to be trainable.

Ken Morrison's comment, May 24, 2013 9:02 PM
I will definitely be sharing this with students and reminding myself that part of mental performance is blocking things out. I like the computer analogy. A faster processor is great. Letting an older computer focus on one important task can perform much better than the fast comptuer running 13 applications.
