Factors Affecting Technological Stress among Public School Teachers during COVID-19 Pandemic
Asian Research Journal of Arts & Social Sciences,
Aims: The present investigation aims to study the factors affecting technological stress among public school teachers during the covid-19 pandemic. This study hopes to address this gap wherein the result is timely, relevant, and as a potential basis for possible interventions.
Study Design: The study employed a descriptive-correlational design.
Place and Duration: This study occurred in Region XI, Davao Del Sur, between 2021 and 2022.
Methodology: A total of 174 public school teachers participated in the study's data collection. Using an adapted survey questionnaire, distributed using GOOGLE forms, the demographic profile and the level of technostress were collected among those who participated in the Health Psychology Symposium led by the researchers.
Results: The findings revealed that the majority of the respondents were young adults, female, and were Teacher 1. Also, the test of significance revealed that the p-value was less than the 0.05 level of significance, thus indicating that there is indeed a significant relationship between age and the level of technostress of teachers.
Conclusion: The study concluded that age-specific interventions that may improve public teachers' technology usage or equipping them with skills to overcome stress must be perused.
