K-12 Teachers of Engineering in U.S. Lack Needed Preparation and Support from Education System

When Does Executive Function Happen?
Discussion Executive function (EF) is the “…cognitive processes that facilitate goal-directed action and problem solving, such as working memory, cognitive flexibility, inhibitory control, and self-monitoring.

EF also allow us to pay attention to what is meaningful for the time and situation e.g. academic testing, paying attention to traffic and not the radio while...
