Anyone else worn out by all this technology?

Who else is completely worn out from all this technology?
There are so many platforms to learn and use - WebEx, Google Classroom, SeeSaw, Amplify, Illuminate, etc.

We just learned how to use WebEx, Google Classroom, Amplify, and Illuminate in a short amount of time. Now it's SeeSaw. Thank goodness they don't expect us to use it until next school year, but they had to show us today for some reason to stress us out more.

Weird thing though, my coworkers, especially the younger ones were excited about it. I thought, they were training us to use Google Classroom 2 wks ago, and now this gets sprung on us! I said this is great to go along with the others but was thinking, what the?

I'm so stressed from the lag time and echoing on live sessions everyday. How can you all stand it? I sit there and listen during meetings because I can't stand to hear my voice twice from the lag time. Then, to listen to others and their echoing makes my skin crawl. I just can't wait for the meetings to be over.

Anyone else? I have a headache thinking about it!

I am about to jump off the bridge- well not really! But I am completely stressed out over all this. If I'm not crying over instructional platforms, then I question my own professionalism. Really! I have been teaching 20 years. I have been Disney nominated! I may not be the best at technology, or even good at it, but I CAN teach. With that said, I am counting the day until school is over. Which, by the way, our super has not given a formal last day!!! Too many unanswered questions. Next year, I may use all 119 of my sick days to start the year.
