Information overload was a buzz phrase before the internet, before messaging, the 24/7 news cycle, social media, analytics, keyboard tracking, UX design, LinkedIn,and PowerPoint. But it’s a reality here and now for teachers, writes Will Brodie.

Coined in 1964 and popularised in the 1970s via Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock, information overload amounted to mental paralysis: presented with too much data, you were left confused and/or unable to make a decision.
