Content: < Focus Shifting >
We will research and experiment on the theme “Focus Shifting“.
Our eyes shift focus from one point to another without conscious attention. We do this so we can understand what surrounds us, the objects, landscapes or people. We also often keep our focus on what interests us. But when we don’t understand something, we keep our focus for longer time in order to understand it.
This process is partly a metacognitive monitoring, involving awareness, sensation, prediction, inspection and evaluation.Understanding requires goal setting, planning and correction.
The development of metacognitive abilities begins with the awareness of oneself. As we direct our attention to our own experience, in the mental, physical, emotional or spiritual planes, we come to a different understanding of what we perceive.
We will work on activities involving self-monitoring. We will sense the space where we have that feeling of “almost understanding’’, and “almost not understanding’’. Experimental psychology call these phenomena FOW : Feeling of Warmth.
We will work with a partner on subjective and objective information such as interests, notable actions, concerns, problems, worries, important events, to experience the “Focus Shifting“.
