Vance has created a course for a unique cohort of young students at the Naval College in UAE. They all have laptops and their instructors at the college complain that their laptops are distracting in class, so the students' attention and focus has to be earned. Therefore this course was designed to engage the students and leverage their ubiquitous access to computers into learning outcomes. The course would not have been possible without continuous access to and interaction with others in my CoP and extended PLN this past decade, which enabled me to experience engaged learning with peers in order to model it for my students. Vance has assembled survey and student blog data to verify student interest in the materials; but rather than present on the topic (there is a recorded version online already) Vance would like to briefly overview it and discuss with those present how they engage their students and make learning F.U.N.
