Interactivity

Presenter(s): Ken Beatty

In this session, Dr Ken Beatty draws together threads of the week’s discussions with a look at interactivity. How can we use the interactive features of past and present technologies to enhance teenagers’ learning processes? How can these processes mirror how teenagers already interact with the world? What role does interaction play in memory and learning? What happens to the brain when it is engaged in purposeful interaction? And how can Wider World help implement these principles?
