PowerSchool is the leading #EdTech provider serving more than 45 million students in over 70 countries.
An observation from an actual teacher of my acquaintance:
Parents of students under 16: Take the damn PowerSchool app off your kids’ phones. All they do is wait for the next notification to hit their phone or watch once a grade is posted. Instant gratification for either less and less effort, or your kid is going through massive anxiety 24/7. I just entered a grade of 93. Kid dropped to a 96. Got an email from an upset kid within five seconds.
Sorry. It’s annoying as hell how the technology is clearly correlating with less effort or higher anxiety levels. Some kids even say “as long as I’m not flunking it’s all good.” Or, “OMG OMG I dropped from an A+ to an A!! I’m having palpitations!!”
It’s probably a good thing we didn’t have stuff like that when I was a schoolboy.
