Attention in class

The average attention span of adults is approximately 10 to 15 minutes, so it is not surprising that children also find it difficult to stay focused in an hour-long class. Paying attention is essential for students to achieve good academic performance and access the knowledge of the course.

Young children are constantly exposed to stimuli that activate the brain, preventing it from relaxing and focusing on what it is doing. There are techniques to help keep your attention during a class. The following are some of them:

  • Captures your attention. Start the class with something new, a curiosity or something they might find interesting. The first few minutes are crucial to catch their attention. Take advantage of them!
  • Reward your progress. The best way to motivate students to actively participate in class is to offer rewards for work well done.
  • Encourages teamwork. In this way, students learn to help each other, to develop empathy, to better understand others and, above all, to solve problems.
  • Employs new technologies. The incorporation of technological tools allows students to develop new skills. In addition, there are numerous platforms such as Smile and Learn that allow them to learn about any subject through interactive activities and games that motivate them.
  • It includes the game in a transversal way to the content. Children learn much better through interactive games that are gradually incorporated into the classroom.
  • Promotes cooperative learning in class. It is a methodology that seeks to achieve student autonomy, that is, that they are able to learn from themselves and from their peers.
