Computer Policy for Dynamics of Social Change

Unplug from the Matrix and reconnect with yourself

 

Dear students

I have decided to reinforce and reassert, and indeed further harden, my computer policy. I would like no computers in the classroom. Please print out the readings and bring them with you if you would like to refer to them during the discussion. I have created a lovely binder to do just that for myself.

I want us to be mindful in class, and learn how to have a high level dialogue and discussion. Computers interfere with that.

I am an environmentalist, and I am also an expert on information technology. (Wrote my dissertation on it. . . ) Sometimes, we need to focus, and talk to the person next to us, not look at a screen. If you are worried about paper, recycle. Or, create a binder which is effectively your textbook for the semester.

Many thanks, and this is not open to negotiation, so you can stop asking me about it.

Sincerely, Dr. Bowman
