Motivation and the Internet Age

Growing up in the internet age is very different. People, especially students have everything at their fingertips and could have all kinds of things available to them in a few seconds, entertainment in particular. Thus, there is little room for other type of motivation besides that of being entertained at all times, classrooms included. Teachers are often caught between a rock and a hard place since competing with the internet for the students’ attention is not an easy task. Are there any solutions to this issue? How can students be motivated to stay focused and productive. Perhaps reminding them of the not so distant past and giving them some examples of great achievers could stir up some motivation!
