I didn't actually attend this session, but in looking at the handouts it had some interesting information. If you want to explore tech resources currently available--the PDF above is a great start!
Here's an interesting quote I found in the material:
Interest is one of the best predictors of achievement across a variety of domains.
When students enjoy tasks, they are intrinsically motivated to do well. Both interests and personal relevance produce intrinsic value for a student.(Siegle, Rubenstein, Pollard, & Romey, 2010)
