Keeping Your Learners’ Attention: How Our Brain Decides What to Focus On

These thoughts can be true for some, but if elearning is presented effectively, with the learner’s attention span in mind, we can see a shift in this ideology. Candy Crush is calling our name… In John Medina’s book, Brain Rules , we learn how the brain works. His book inspires much of the work we do at Learnkit to maintain the attention of our learning audience. But the reality is, the brain cannot multitask.

Instead, neuroscience is a complicated study of how the brain (and the nervous system) works and reacts to stimuli and situations. Sometimes referred to as “neurolearning” or its dastardly cousin “neuromarketing,” the study of the brain gives us insight into becoming more effective at what we do. The book also debunks many deep-rooted learning myths and replaces old ideas with a fresh, new look on how the brain reacts to different learning situations.

What is Effective Leadership?

Four major voices in the leadership analysis conversation came together in 2014 to write a book called, “ Collective Genius ,” which explores how to lead innovative teams.

We know from the research of Carol Dweck that what people believe about learning can have a profound effect on employee development.
