Transcript of Multitasking

"When distractions force you to pay less attention to what you are doing, you don't learn as well as if you had paid full attention," mul·ti·task·ing

the performance of multiple tasks at one time •Silence your phone when studying but allow yourself to check messages and take a break. Choose a specific time for your break and stick to it. Find different methods of studying that work for you, such as discussing what you’ve learned bytalkingwith others, making flashcards,taking notes. Consider your learning style (visual,auditory, ortactile). Make time for eating frequently, sleeping and physical activity. Multitasking only makes studying take longer. http://www.notdoppler.com/multitask.php The fMRIs showed that when the participants learned without distraction, an area of the brain known as the hippocampus was involved. This part of the brain is critical to the processing and storing of information. But when they learned the task while multitasking, the hippocampus was not engaged. Instead, an area called the striatum was activated. The striatum is involved in learning new skills like riding a bicycle. Multitasking can lower your IQ 10 full points!
