Teaching Naked shows how technology is most powerfully used
outside the classroom and, when used effectively, how it can ensure that students arrive to class more prepared for meaningful interaction with faculty. José Bowen introduces a new way to think about learning and technology that prioritizes the benefits of the human dimension in education. Here he offers practical advice for faculty and administrators on how to engage students with new technology, while restructuring classes into more active learning environments.
