How many emails are in your inbox?

I was amazed to hear this week someone had 45 000 emails in their inbox. Someone else had just processed over 7 000 and I had processed and deleted 2 000 from one email account I have. I have more than one. I separate my personal life, working life and online life. Even so, emails are a big job for everyone. There are the sites you subscribe to because you think it’s a great idea to get their emails. There are the efficient sites which keep letting you know what you have done, been doing or what their latest suggestions are. There are then all the other emails you receive for bills, payments,receipts, tracking, professional information, daily routine, from friends, relatives, colleagues. Facebook lets you know everything. Google is onto any new login from a new device/OS on your account. On and on it goes. You can watch them build up on your iPad or phone. You can ignore them if you have to log into an email account . By now there has to be a psychological term for fear of being submerged in emails. The inbox can become your nemesis. The video suggests a practical way of going about dealing with emails. This will work if you only have to manage one account. If you have more, then you really do have to be practical and work out a system of how to manage accounts in terms of their priority. There is a real plus side to email so we need to keep troubleshooting how to manage them because they really are becoming prolific. The more we are involved online , the more we get emails. YouTube has a number of videos to help you manage emails but it now needs to become part of our lifestyle , policy and practice. No one should be having to deal with 45 000 emails. Avoiding them means there is a problem with email as a system not the person. Most people manage most normal daily routine tasks well. They can pack their lunch, do the washing, organise their work routines and so on. Email swamping needs to be addressed and resolved.

Electronic communication

electronic communication According to Workplace-Communication.Com there are 55 types of electronic communication. How many are you familiar with? How many do you use? Which ones have students mastered? Are there any missing? What purpose does each form of communication have and what is its impact? How do you alter the impact? How do you use each of these forms of communication effectively? The site discusses a number of issues and ideas. As teachers we need to be in control of electronic communication and we need to ensure students are getting the positives out of it and that they too have mastered the various forms of electronic communication. Literacy in the 21st century is demanding . The choices are impressive and each choice creates a different impact both on the net and for the receiver. Communicating electronically is about using the best tool for the job and then experimenting to see how you can change the impact. An example? I don’t read emails with a high priority alert any sooner than any other email. I decide what is a high priority in my packed agenda not someone else because they don’t have my life and my day. We need to use alerts and notifications better in schools. The world runs on streaming information and then alerting you to events and changes. In a school context there is a need for a high priority form of communication with an appropriate icon. While we are shifting outside time frames and walls we need to develop suitable protocols through apps, LMSs and email and smartphones which ensure we get the information flowing by way of content and then highlighting events, deadlines, priorities via alerts. Then there needs to be an accepted form of electronic communication for emergencies and emergency information. Things to think about and things to master – literacy first then functionality.It’s not about being tied to work 27/7. Effectively developed and implemented electronic communication saves time and effort and is not time consuming or debilitating.
