ATTENTION ATTENTION; I LOST ATTENTION!
Parents are often confused by the fact that their children spend concentrated hours watching cartoons or typing on the computer, and when it comes to work obligations - their attention drops galloping. Where is the possible answer? The key part of the answer is in motivation and interest. When we are interested in something, we can deal with it longer; so the child can concentrate better and longer if something is interesting to him - because the emotional response to the given content is much stronger, and therefore much longer. So we see that the emotional state affects attention. How? Negative emotions cause a narrowing of the repertoire of thought processes, and positive emotions expand them. We know that emotions are important in the educational process because they activate attention, which is usually a prerequisite for learning and memory. So, the more pleasant feelings there are during educational activities, the easier, faster and longer the material will be remembered. What does the school of the future look like? A school that enables children to learn through the creative process and encourages them to do so. Which teaches children visual representation and mapping of information; which teaches them to - through the application of specific principles and techniques - be satisfied with their achievement ... In a word - which provokes positive emotions in them, and which develops their independence and individuality. A child leaves such a school confidently, without fear and insecurity - able to acquire new knowledge, use existing ones and easily adapt to new life situations.
