The purpose of the course is to provide participants with examples of 21st century media integration in either traditional or nontraditional classroom situations in order to bolster student engagement and learning and facilitate concept retention by bringing the student closer to their current technological lives within a rigorous educational environment. New interactive media developed largely in the past decade represent a vital opportunity to leverage children's interests to expand their skills and knowledge. Advances in brain research clearly point to engagement as a key factor in learning. Evidence suggests that kids today have different brains because of two simple facts: 1.) The brain changes as a result of experience, and 2.) Experiences are different for today's kids contrasted with those of two decades ago (Introduction to Brain Compatible Learning, Jensen 2007).
