I've found that there is no better attention-getter than using media from pop culture.
That's definitely a great strategy! Have you seen The Week in Rap? It's a good one!

Also, I think any time learners have something to produce, it helps. If a child has to create something rather than just sitting there and receiving knowldge, that child is often more engaged. I find this is especially true when students use technology to make that product. If you're able to give kids a one-to-one tech experience (i.e., every student is creating a podcast), their focus is much less likely to waiver.
Students will be more engaged if the activity (I am thinking that by activity you mean task?) is at their level. The activity or task needs to be a challenge but not so challenging a student becomes frustrated and lose focus. Too easy and students will lose focus as well. Look for ways to adapt the activity to meet different learning styles, preferences and levels.
