The “traditional” approach to teaching modern teenagers has not kept pace with the ever-changing demands of their world outside of school and has left these students largely disengaged from their education. However, simply sitting students in front of computers and letting them use their cellphones does not automatically result in high-quality educational experiences. Participants will develop an understanding of the supportive modern theory, research, and practice (e.g., Connectivism, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and Engagement Theory) in order to implement worthwhile and engaging digital instruction in their classroom, school, or district.
