Digital Education and Motivation Matters

One of the areas that interests me most as an ed-tech reporter is the intersection between technology and student engagement. I've been writing for the Motivation Matters blog and covering student motivation for Education Week for more than a year now, and during that time, I've found that there's quite a bit of crossover between that and what I cover for Digital Directions about integrating technology into the classroom.

For example, a blog post I wrote on Motivation Matters today about using iPods to motivate students to stay on task and whether or not iPods should be allowed in the classroom is a perfect example of the way that technology and student engagement often work in tandem. Feel free to check out the post, and weigh in over there if you have an opinion.
