Hi and welcome back to Attentionology for K – 5 Teachers!
Attentionology is celebrating our eighth anniversary this month helping teachers meet tough challenges that increase each year.
Since I began publishing Attentionology in March, 2010, the numbers continue to skyrocket.
Answer: Teachers and support staff in elementary schools who are challenged with educating increasingly distracted children in a world of sensory bombardment.
Call it a rolling sea-change in education.
So many concerns. So many questions.
Why do kids struggle to sustain concentration in today’s classrooms?
What role does and can technology play in helping or hindering the educational process?
What kinds of support do teachers need and want now?
What curricula work best?
How can parents and the community at large help schools reach their goals for the greater good?
These are not new questions, but the issues they address continue to challenge us.
Certainly no one answer to any of these questions is a prescription for helping children achieve goals anywhere in the world today.
