Improving student engagement in and with digital learning technologies

Engagement is critical to learning, but it has proved challenging to promote both meaningful engagement and deep learning. Can digital learning technologies help? This chapter provides a broad overview of some promising paths to measure students’ level of engagement during learning with digital technologies and how these technologies can be designed to improve engagement on the onset of learning or when disengagement sets in. It discusses why engagement matters for learning, how to measure engagement with digital learning technologies, and presents different types of approaches in using data and technology to improve students’ engagement and learning.
