Students today bring their laptops to class, listen to their iPods while surfing the net and are exposed to regular stimulation at home with their Facebook, twitter and email accounts. With the constant technological stimulation that students expect; we as instructors have to work even harder to create a motivational and effective learning environment. In this paper we discuss several tools we have used and recommend incorporating into an introductory statistics class.
