On What it Would Mean to Really Teach Naked

Dave, AcademHacK, Jul 24, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I agree with this: "Eliminating technology produces not the effect of a more engaged literate student populous, rather it produces the reverse, an ill informed, uncritical, unengaged student populous who will become at the very best passive consumers of the technology being resisted, and at the worst its willing victims." Which is why it's a shame that the Chronicle's report on SMU professor Jose Bowen is framed as as an anti-technology stance, instead of what it really is, an effort to improve, not eliminate, technology.
