Living in Confusion
Welcome back to When the Wind Blows...an Epic podcast for parents, teachers, leaders and anyone vested in the world of education.
Confusion. the state of being bewildered or unclear in one's mind about something.
Since March I believe we have all probably been living here. Adley Stump is a FB famous influencer and made the funniest video… Woman makes a parody announcement about Coronavirus safety
Let see if we can make a parody of our own. You need to do your core and EE
EE and homework help, that all you need to do…
Write this paper and read this book...and mindplay and Dreambox
Make sure you log into Google Classroom and work that PLP
Did you do your mastery Connect? Where is the work in your core???
Add to that the things that are added in the home...well, dishes are gonna be home ec lesson today
Bible study is our history lesson today
Go outside and play...I need you to go outside and play...its PE!
Its no wonder we...kids included are living in this state of confusion and appear as they are not going with the flow.

“The time and energy required for effective vision communication are directly related to the clarity and simplicity of the message. Communication seems to work best when it is so direct and so simple that it has a sort of elegance. The challenge of simple and direct communication is that it requires great clarity of thought plus more than a little courage. It’s much harder to be clear and concise than overcomplicated and wordy.”
- John Kotter, Leading Change
- Amy Edmondson, Teaming
According to Deloitte, decision paralysis brought on by the inability to choose between options is typically the result of cognitive overload and fatigue.
Students- I don’t even know where to begin (EE, Core, PLP, Google Classroom, Shmoop)
Parents- So many kids, jobs, appointments, precautions, emails, calls, texts…
Teachers- Benchmarking, Zoom Calls, Grades, Meetings, Grades, Reports, Grades
Admin- MPRs, Meetings, Data Management, Parent conferences, Emails, Texts, Calls
Confusion….result of cognitive overload and fatigue (and 2020). Where do we even begin...decision paralysis has reared its ugly head across the board this year.
What do we do? We need clarity. Clarity from our leaders, teachers, parents, within ourselves.
