"The biggest and most complex challenge facing educators today is students not paying attention or participating in class. Classroom engagement is at an all-time low, and lecturers are competing against countless diversions relentlessly beaming from students’ phones, tablets and laptops."

In this e-book, journalist and higher education expert Philip Preville explores how smart professors can learn to welcome and harness technology, rather than fight against it.

Philip Preville writes in  the introduction, "How’s this for an absurd paradox: over the last 200 years universities and colleges have been hotbeds of technological change and innovation, yet their classrooms haven’t changed at all. Since the early 19th century adoption of the blackboard, classrooms have been structured like theatres, with rows of seats facing a large screen, and a professor’s pulpit."
