Tech Fun
Destressing technology in education

Abstract:

Stress is pressure, literally and figuratively. It's all too easy to feel that pressure spinning out of control, especially in this age of technology, where absolutely nothing can ever go wrong because we have computers. (Haven't you heard? Computers are our friends, our servants.) This practical and engaging workshop takes a look at how stress occurs in the modern classroom and what to do about it. Join with Lou Fournier (technology humor columnist for Converge magazine) and Dr. Burmark (recovering stressaholic) for nuggets and gems (from the nutty to the inspirational). Bring your own horror stories (we need a laugh) and a list of the top ten ways you destress (causing other people distress doesn't count) in your techno-world.
