The Stress Generated by the Introduction of NICT in the Educational Environment
New Information and Communication Technologies (NICT) are considered valuable tools for the educational environment, but there are very few studies that analyze the effects of the stress caused by the use of NICT on teachers. This research examines the stress generated by the use of NICT by teachers in the instructive-educational process. At the same time, stressors are identified as a result of the implementation and use of new technologies. Synthesizing the results of the scientific approach, the use of technologies increases the stress of the teachers. The purpose of this research is to evaluate the extent to which the stress generated by NICT affects teachers and didactic activity. In other words, it is to be seen whether NICT attenuates or amplifies the stress of teachers and their impact on the instructive-educational process. As the educational environment tries to adapt to the information society, it is important for teachers to continually improve on the use of NICT, even if there may be factors that prevent effective use of the technology itself. Therefore, this research analyzes the relationship between stress and NICT used in the educational environment.
