SANCOVSCHI, Beatriz  and  KASTRUP, Virgínia. Contemporary practices of study and the learning of attention. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2013, vol.25, n.1, pp.193-202. ISSN 1807-0310.

The objective of this paper is to analyze the learning of attention in the practices of study of psychology students in contemporaneity. We chose to investigate some of the new subjective / cognitive formations that are emerging instead of presenting the changes in relation to traditional practices in terms of deficit. We have built a cartography of the contemporary cognition by using interviews with psychology students from Rio de Janeiro. In order to accomplish that, we used the explicitation technique. The presence of the computer-internet in the daily lives of these students and therefore on their practices of study, contributes to produce a skipping attention and an attention without rhythm, which will be transformed on a sufficient attention and divided attention. On the other hand, there are evidences of a cognitive policy that is curious and eager to learn, which can produce different results.

Keywords : practices of study; contemporary cognition; learning of attention; new technologies.
