Continuous partial attention describes how many of us use our attention today. It is different from simple multi-tasking. The two are differentiated by the impulse that motivates them. When we multi-task, we are motivated by a desire to be more productive and more efficient. One or both of the activities we’re doing is automatic or routine, and requires very little cognitive processing. We give the same priority to much of what we do when we multi-task — we file and copy papers, talk on the phone, eat lunch — we get as many things done at one time as we possibly can in order to make more time for ourselves and ...
is the performance by an individual of appearing to handle more than one task at the same time. The term is derived from computer multitasking . An example of multitasking is listening to a radio interview while typing an email. Some believe that multitasking can result in time wasted due to human context switching and apparently causing more errors due to insufficient attention . Other research illustrates our brains are capable dealing with certain 'dual multiple tasks' at the same time.

Continuous Partial Attention: Software & Solutions
The ways in which we consume and pay attention to information are changing. The changes are not minor, they are big and profound. Right now, it impacts us all individually - but soon the change will be visible on a global scale. We are splitting our attention over a rapidly growing body of online information. To cope with that we replaced reading with skimming and learned to work in an environment with constant interrupts. We no longer have time to pause and reflect, let along think for a while. Today we have successfully replaced attention with what Linda Stone coined and Marc Orchant recently wrote about : Continuous Partial ... market research, surveys and trends

I give presentations to educators at every level, all around the world. All of the teachers are earnestly trying to adapt their educational system to the twenty-first century. During my talks, however, I typically look out at oceans of white hair. Never -- I can't even say rarely -- is a kid in sight or invited to the party. It is a measure of the malaise of our educational system that these old folk -- smart and experienced as they may be -- think they can, by themselves and without the input of the people they're trying to teach, design the future of education. One of the strangest things in this age of young ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
