This is a comparison of stress teachers faced 40 years ago and stress teachers face today with the advent of technological advancements. Read my blog, think about it, comment on it and share it. Is technology increasing teachers' stress or reducing it? http://jjsquared640.blogspot.com/2014/07/has-technology-reduced-teachers...

Hi Jill,
Your blog posting made me laugh out loud with some of the stories that you told. I think you give some great advice and I agree wholeheartedly that teachers have a right - and they must exercise that right - to say enough is enough.

I have no doubt that, when used correctly, technology is a great time saver and improver. The tricky bit is using it correctly. And while I agree there seem to be more helicopter parents around, I'm not sure that's technology - I think there are far more reasons at play there.

Hi Jill! Rather than posting the link, why don't you share your thoughts here on the site? I think other folks would like to read it as well!
