I’m surprised that the number of students texting is not higher. With technology we have all chosen to become accessible to work and each other 24/7. Can any students remember a time when there were not cell phones or a time when you had to wait to talk to a classmate until you saw him or her the next morning at school? We have the luxury now to be in constant touch with the world, our work, and each other through technology. It has to be our choice to give ourselves space from work or school. Technology is not creating the email frustration. Maybe we can’t leave it behind because of our fears-fear of what will happen if we say ‘no, I need to rest’ and fear of the space we create by saying ‘no’.
