Art of Concentration

The lost art of concentration: being distracted in a digital world

“By adopting an always-on, anywhere, anytime, any place behavior, we exist in a constant state of alertness that scans the world but never really gives our full attention to anything.” —Harriet Griffey
Although anyone born today is entering a digitally robust world, there isn’t an evolutionary predisposition to understanding how to use digital products effectively.
More importantly, we don’t have any predispositions (or internal alarms) ready to stop us from harming our mental and emotional health (e.g. becoming addicted to social media). But, we do have the information available to us to make us aware of the slippery slope before we fall down it.
As you explore this article from The Guardian, consider how your young learners could thrive in this digital landscape if they cultivated the habits needed to stay focused in an increasingly distracted world.
