Stop Telling your Students to "Pay Attention." Jenson Learning. Web. 21 Mar 2018.

<http://www.jensenlearning.com/news/students-to-pay- Mar attention/brain-based-teaching&gt;

This article focuses on the way of gaining a student's attention. Students are conditioned to pay attention to any sound and movement. This article focuses on the methods that can be utilized to ensure the students have a higher attention span towards a lecture. One technique is to engage the student into the lesson through questions, situational explanation or group work. Another practice includes giving the students breaks. Statistics show students have vast improvement after taking a break. Using these methods, a student can grow to concentrate through further lectures. During college lectures information can be quite crucial, using these methods at an early stage can prepare students for further studies.

Teaching students how to learn

Teaching students how to learn | Learning and the Brain | Scoop.it

It's no secret that students learn best when they self-regulate--set their own academic goals, develop strategies to meet them and reflect on their academic performance.

Using Practice Effectively With Young Students | Learning and the Brain | Scoop.it

"Practice allows the learner to use the newly learned skill in a new situation with sufficient accuracy so that it will be correctly remembered.
