I need a little help. I'm creating an exercise to demonstrate the Split Attention Effect. Split Attention occurs when extraneous cognitive load imposed by background or environmental elements negatively affects learning.
For example, I cannot write and listen to music. My brain follows the song lyrics and I can't focus on whatever I'm writing.
So, I need a song to play during a training that everybody knows. A song that everyone will follow along to and therefore ignore whatever I'm teaching. Thus proving my theory that listening to music while listening to a customer's needs isn't a great idea.
What suggestions do you have for a song that everybody will know?
