Hot Topic: Surfing the Net at Work

The internet can be too much of a good thing. I'm sure you've read articles about how productivity is dropping in the work place due to the internet. Surfing the net, checking email, and chatting are just a few of the ways people are getting distracted.

The same holds true for teachers. While it's pretty hard to surf the net while teaching, while in the office, you can easily get distracted even though you're trying to do something productive, like looking for lesson plans or grammar tips.

So what can you do? Limit the time you spend online. Only check your email once or twice a day and use a separate email for work. Try using a stopwatch to make sure you don't spend too much time online.

What do you think?
Do you spend too much time online at work? Do you feel that the internet is helpful or harmful in the workplace?
