FAIRFIELD, N.J., Sept. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pathfinder Vue File Systems, a blueprint storage systems supplier, revealed several productivity hacks geared towards office workers that also apply to teachers. This news comes at a busy (and stressful) time for teachers as they start the school year. Which makes it all the more important for them to employ these productivity hacks—such as the Pomodoro Technique and space utilization using the blueprint storage rack, among others.
Key findings from a 2016 study indicate teaching as "one of the most stressful occupations in the country [U.S.]…" According to the study, 46% of teachers deal with high stress on a daily basis, which affects their quality of life, health, sleep, and ability to teach. Consequently, this then affects the quality of education students receive. The study points out that students' social adjustment and academic performance drop if the teacher becomes very stressed.
To address this issue, Pathfinder Vue File Systems recommends incorporating productivity tools in the classroom to help teachers reduce daily stress. Such tools, like the Pomodoro Technique and space utilization, have been reported on extensively in the office space. But, with some minor adjustments, can be just as beneficial in the classroom environment, depending on the teaching style and class environment.
The Pomodoro Technique, for instance, requires workers to focus on office-related tasks for a 25-minute period. Afterward, they're rewarded with a 5-minute break. Teachers can employ the same technique with their students, especially when they're doing individual study. In doing so, students are able to focus on one task at a time, which "result[s] in reduction of…internal and external distractions," states a Journal of the American College of Radiology article. With more concentration and less distraction, teachers can feel less stressed and use productivity hacks, such as this, to increase student workflow.
Additionally, teachers can banish clutter and reduce stress by incorporating productivity-friendly school furniture, like the blueprint storage rack, in the classroom. Clutter overwhelms your brain, leading to decreased productivity and more stress. Storing students' artwork, tests, and other school documents in an efficient storage space minimizes clutter, which has a more positive affect on the brain.
