Professor Of New Media Bans Technology Use In Class

I graduated from college long before this was an issue so I want to know what do you guys think of a professor that bans the use of tech in his class?

I teach theory and practice of social media at NYU, and am an advocate and activist for the free culture movement, so I’m a pretty unlikely candidate for internet censor, but I have just asked the students in my fall seminar to refrain from using laptops, tablets, and phones in class.
