Researches regarding the burnout state evaluation: the case of principals from Arab schools from South Israel
It is a reality that wearable devices are part of our lives. We find them in different forms and answering different utilities and needs. The present research responds to an expressed necessity, namely the awareness on the psychological stress work-related syndrome of burnout, increasingly present in different fields of ac-tivity, education being among them. The research is carried out on two directions: (1) The analysis of the relationship between the organizational climate and the burnout state using a quantitative research. The results are concerning the identifi-cation of the organizational climate dimensions with the highest influence on the state of burnout and also, the fact that the studied demographic variables have no influence on the state of burnout. (2) The development, prototyping and testing of a burnout state evaluation and prediction device based on a burnout detection algorithm that allows the creation of a user profile. The findings of the research will further allow the testing of the prototype for evaluation and prediction of the burnout state in response to the stressors related to the identified high influence dimensions of the organizational climate. The research is characterized by a high degree of specificity due to the identified premises and the research context focused on the principals from Arab schools from South Israel.
