Over the last 30 years, technology has become an integral part of higher education; from wireless networks to smart classrooms, universities and colleges are investing billions of dollars to update their facilities with the latest tools. But not all educators are convinced that learning has improved with all the attention given to technology.

The Chronicle for Higher Education recently featured Mr. Bowen in the article: When Computers Leave Classrooms, So Does Boredom.
