    • The perception that a drop in student attendance will occur because:

      • Students think that no need to be in class

      • Any inconvenience can be a reason to stay home

    • Attendant loss of interaction in class

    • Decline in note taking

    Faculty resistance
    Faculty Resistance

    • Paulo Freire (1973) once said that “The answer does not lie in the rejection of the machine but in the humanization of man” (p.35).

    • Freire (1972) also said "It is not the media themselves which I criticize, but the way they are used" (p.136).
