Focusing is a kind of instructional treatment that involves guiding or attracting students attention to target knowledge components or features of those knowledge components (see feature focusing).

Focusing my enhance robust learning through different learning processes:

  • Focusing student attention on relevant features of knowledge components (and perhaps away from irrelevant features) may help students distinguish the relevant from irrelevant features for retrieving and using knowledge components correctly and with understanding. (See feature focusing).
