Attention to details

An important element of learning is the attention that is usually linked with memory. We usually ask students to pay attention to  tasks in the environment, but what does pay attention mean?, Do we notice subtle differences or do we need drastic changes in the environment to know that something happened?.

Here I share a video that will make you prove your ability to pay attention, but please, don’t  feel bad if you don’t fully understand what happens, repeat the video and then share your experience:

Once you can discover the trick, you will notice that if the change in the environment is dramatic, your brain will be enough active to  say something happened here, but at the same time ... How much do we dare to say that something is causing a cognitive dissonance?, I mean   hey, what happened here?.
