NARDIN, Maria Helena and SORDI, Regina Orgler. The learning of attention and pedagogic and informational subjectivities. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp.53-61. ISSN 0102-7182. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822008000100006.
The main goal of this paper is to discuss the ways attention has been understood and its relations with learning in the contemporary world, by trying to relate it with two ways of subjective constructions: the pedagogic and the informational. Following is the presentation of the results of a pilot study done with the first grade of a grammar school. The purpose of the research was to study the ways attention was experienced between students and teachers during the learning process and analyze its development. It suggested that the classroom could be a space of learning of an attention open to invention as long as it is possible to experience the sudden reception that emerges from a rupture of the focus. Also, it suggested the need of a dialogical dynamics of communication based on the principle of interaction and co-operation.
