Help Learners to Maintain Their Attention – comes from the Free Guide – ‘Are you frustrated by training that creates short term interest but not long term change?.

Scientific research differs with regards to exactly how long we can maintain concentration. We all know that concentrating for too long is difficult because the mind wanders. Sometimes because we have a lot on our minds and often because we just need a break. Alternatively, it can be because we are reflecting & processing what we have just learnt, which is the type of reflection that trainers want to see.

The Distraction Tool transparently deals with this challenge by providing Learners with a solution that almost encourages them to take a moment to daydream.

help learners to maintain their attention longer


To avoid ‘distracted learning’ ask the Learners, at the start of the learning event, to take a sheet of paper and title it ‘Distractions List’. Ask them to make a note of what they are thinking about as their mind wanders throughout the day. This will help them to regain focus much quicker, get back to the training event and not forget what they were thinking.
