Recent advances in technology and in ideology have provided new opportunities in pedagogic science however there is an increasing belief, amongst many educators, that certain technologies can also demotivate and distract from learning. This paper looks at a work in progress case study of Information System teaching where technology is excluded from physical classrooms. Students are not allowed to use mobile phone devices or indeed any internet connected devices. Taking a flipped classroom approach the researchers discuss the early, but favourable, results from their study. Qualitative results show that the new teaching style is more popular as well as preferable to the common ‘sage on the stage’ lecturing approach. Early indicators suggest an improvement in student performance and an increased motivation in classroom engagement.
