Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning

Technology is changing higher education, but the greatest value of a physical university will remain its face-to-face (naked) interaction between faculty and students. Technology has fundamentally changed our relationship to knowledge and this increases the value of critical thinking, but we need to redesign our courses to deliver this value. The most important benefits to using technology occur outside of the classroom. New technology can increase student preparation and engagement between classes and create more time for the in-class dialog that makes the campus experience worth the extra money it will always cost to deliver. Students already use online content, but need better ways to interact with material before every class.
