Term2.png COGNITIVE ENGAGEMENT
Intentional processing of lesson content, which promotes manipulation rather than memorization, as the means through which learners acquire both lesson knowledge and deeper conceptual insight. Engagement can be elevated through a variety of activities such as inducing cognitive dissonance, posing argumentative questions requiring the development of a supportable position, and causing learners to generate a prediction during a lesson.[1]
