It makes me less stressed. It's one of the few pieces of wearable technology that I've tried in my career that actively, and successfully helps me get through a bad day... The Apple Watch's Breath app isn't going to cure depression, nor is it claiming to solve every social problem you have. What it does do though is give you a place to start.

There's a funny thing going on, here. The more mysterious and abstract computing becomes, the more we revere it and, not coincidentally, the more power it has. And the more power it has, the more power we afford to the people who take on the role as its gatekeepers.

Whilst technology does help create a uniform experience for students, it will never be able to match the unique human interaction that teachers provide. Diverse in background as much as they are in operating style, the most successful teachers are those who best identify the optimal conditions to promote the student-teacher relationship.
