Attention span is the amount of concentrated time a person can spend on a task without becoming distracted. Attention training is said to be part of education, particularly in the way students are trained to remain focused on a topic of observation or discussion for longer periods, developing listening and analytical skills in the process. Estimates for the length of human attention span are highly variable and depend on the precise definition of attention being used.
