Using Interactivity to Enhance Learning & Retention for your Website

by

This lesson is part of a much bigger, semester-long CTE project. The completed project involves the design and development of a website and its content by groups established at the beginning of the semester. This lesson focuses on the creation of engaging interactive content for the website.

Students will experience the stimulation of multiple senses to understand how they enhance user retention, enhancing the learning process. Students will work in their project groups to plan the creation of an interactive activity.

Introduction

Adding interactivity to a website will increase user engagement and help users retain the information that they learn in the process. Activities in this lesson plan will help students think about the information they are presenting in a new way. Websites are no longer just informational, but can enhance the learning experience by engaging the user with interactive design. Students will plan and present an interactive activity idea to the class that triggers multiple senses for higher retention of the information presented. Included are design and technical aspects, goals and intended visitor outcomes.

This lesson is part of an integrated project called "Creating Engaging Content".
