Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Alicja Niedzwiecka

Attention can be defined as the behavioral and cognitive process of selectively concentrating on a specific aspect of information, whether deemed subjective or objective, while ignoring other perceivable information.

Attention is a major area of investigation within education, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, and neuropsychology.

This module looks at defining “attention”, understanding how the brain orchestrates attention and trying techniques to optimise learning by paying attention.

We will explore

  • What constitutes attention?
  • Matching behaviour with paying attention
  • What are attention networks?
  • What are distractions?
  • How to pay attention to optimise learning


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans – KS2 to KS5
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
