  3. -Amishi Jha and her statements about attention and how to train my wandering mind to stay focused and to improve my attention bring me hope. This is something that I work on every day, but I have not mastered yet. Knowing that there are tools that can actually make a difference and that I can use them on my own is very promising.

    Eduardo Briceño’s talk is a motivation for educators to facilitate more activities that promote the learning zone. It is important to leverage mistakes as an opportunity than as a number or a letter for a progress report.
