Teaching Naked: Why Removing Technology from your Classroom Will Improve Student Learning

A university professor writes on the National Teaching & Learning Forum: "simple, new technologies can greatly increase your students' engagement outside of the classroom and thus prepare them for real discussions (even in the very largest classes) by providing content and assessment before class time. The goal, in other words, is to use technology to free yourself from the need to "cover" the content in the classroom, and instead use class time to demonstrate the continued value of direct student to faculty interaction and discussion."
