This is an experiment on the short-term effects of exposure to fast-edited TV on attention spans. With some careful design it would be an interesting model for a classroom experiment.

Great starter video clip that goes with my powerpoint on Memory. Students are told to count the number of times the white team pass the ball. Many will not see the gorilla walk on do a little dance and walk off. They think this is amazing and it is a brilliant way of explaining the importance of paying attention and the difference between implicit and explicit memory.

This video clip illustrates how important attention is in Memory.  Just ask the students to count how many times the white team passes the ball.  Most of them will fail to see the Gorilla appear on screen!  This usually works very well!

A fun clip from Brainiac, a science programme, demonstrating why it is so important to pay attention to things and what you might miss if you don't...a good, fun plenary activity for memory if nothing else!

Also related to test your awareness. It really calls the student´s attention and involves him in learning.

A short video. Ask the students to count the number of times the ball was apssed between the members of the white team. At then end of the video ask the students to put their hand up if they have seen the gorilla... You would be surprised how many students have missed it altogether.

Change Blindness

A special case of information-selection by the human cognitive system. The brain seems to select the information worth to process, or most relevant, at every instant, in almost every context. This might produce some very specific phenomena such as what psychologists call "Change Blindness".

Heres a great 2minute clip to introduce Loftus and Palmer and EWT. Students watch 1 minute clip of a cluedo type scene, during which 21 changes to the scenary, clothes, even actors occur (which you really don't notice!!) Students are then told to list the changes. In the second minute the presenter replays the behind-the-scenes footage to reveal the deceit, and it's a fun way to realise that we don't notice something if we are not looking for it!

This is a great video to use in introductory lessons. I don't want to spoil the surprise but would suggest people sit and watch it and then use it possibly in taster lessons.

Count Basketball passes: either all two-handed chest passes or all two-handed bounce passes. Write down the results. AFTER THAT, ask yourself if sth. strange had happened. For proof, watch the video again...

Clip begins with short description about selective attention. Then go through an experiment conducted by a Harvard professor. The professor changed the individual the subject was talking to. 75% of the subjects did not notice the change.
