Keynote topic: The best reason to adopt technology in your courses is to increase and improve your naked, face-to-face interaction with students.  Free yourself from the need to "cover" the content in the classroom, and instead use class time to demonstrate the continued value of direct student-to-faculty interaction and discussion.
