The digital environment in which the millennial generation was raised may provide challenges for educators to develop engaging pedagogy using technology.  Technology may provide contemporary educators with tools to enhance teaching and provide learning opportunities that incorporate critical thinking and collaboration to improve learning outcomes. The purpose of this quasi-experimental one group pre and posttest designed study was to compare test scores utilizing an innovative computer game to improve learning outcomes.


Key Words:  Millennial generation, digital environment, engaging pedagogy, technology, learning outcomes.
