Who's the center of attention? Smarts . This question is perennial, but one idea has been increasingly influential--that much of what we call intelligence is the ability to regulate attention. Selective attention determines what will enter working memory (the mental workspace in which thought occurs) and what will happen to information once it is in working memory.
Thinking (and learning) occurs when a person combines information from the environment and long-term memory in new ways. This combining happens in working memory. Why intentional teaching of literacy skills & voc matters… Cognitive principle : It is virtually impossible to become proficient at a mental task without extended practice.
