The EDIT2000 course at the University of Georgia is designed around project-based learning (PBL), to enhance college students' understanding about teaching and learning effectively with technology. PBL requires students' active engagement with collaborative learning to provoke in-depth thinking while acquiring and applying new knowledge. However, not all students are engaged during its process. To enhance student engagement, instructors designed a project around an authentic problem, and alloWednesday students to directly apply what they've learned to the proposed problem. Students were asked to create a Stop Animation for 12 first graders in a charter school in need of free online educational resources. In the presentation, we will share (1) how students' engagement was influenced, and (2) the effects of a real-world applicable project on college students
