Add to my Calendar 2021-01-29 12:00:00 2021-01-29 13:00:00 Faculty Book Group Join the faculty book group this winter as we dive into James Lang's timely read, "Distracted: Why Students Can't Focus and What You Can Do About It."   The group meets five times throughout winter term on January 15th, 29th, February 12th, 26th, and March 12th. We will meet to discuss the Introduction and Chapter 1 on January 15th.   About The Book Why is it so hard to get students to pay attention? Conventional wisdom blames iPhones, insisting that access to technology has ruined students' ability to focus. But acclaimed educator James M. Lang argues that this solution obscures a deeper problem: how we teach is often at odds with how students learn. Classrooms are designed to force students into long periods of intense focus, but emerging science reveals that the brain is wired for distraction. We learn best when able to actively seek and synthesize new information.   In Distracted, Lang rethinks the practice of teaching, revealing how educators can structure their classrooms less as distraction-free zones and more as environments where they can actively cultivate their students' attention. Brimming with ideas and grounded in new research, Distracted offers an innovative plan for the most important lesson of all: how to learn.
