Over the past few weeks we’ve shared “5 Top Ways to Beat Overwhelm as an Educator” in our Connected Learning Webinar series. We shared conversations around the challenges educators are facing right now and a variety of ways that educators can be supported throughout the year to diminish overwhelm and stress. The ideas ranged from unplugging, to self-care, to being a connected educator and implementing passion based outcomes. Everyone walked away with an idea to try tomorrow!

Looking for some ways to manage overwhelm? Watch the recording above for ideas!

We developed the webinar based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and some of key big ideas that will be covered in the Instant Impact Collaborative Cohort.

The concepts we talked about in the webinar included:

Self-Care: How can we incorporate self-care into our everyday life? What does it look like for you?

Connected Care: How can you lean on those around you and those far away to get through this challenging year?

Clear Expectations: What expectations do you need and how can expectations be established that support teacher SEL? What expectations can you set for parents and students? How will you communicate them?

Passion Driven Outcomes: How can we give the students more ownership in their learning? How can we let their passions drive the curriculum while still meeting the standards?

Going Deeper: Best Practices in Connected Learning: How can you support your own personal growth this year? How can you take what you learn throughout this year and support others?

Here is a resource document to support the concepts shared in the webinar.

Instant Impact Collaborative Cohort was designed from the perspective of Maslow’s before Blooms, we constantly held the question of “How can we best reduce overwhelm for educators right now?” as we developed the program.

Looking for a culture of care? a group of supportive educators going through the same exact thing you are? Know there is a better way to get through this school year? Take a look at the Instant Impact Collaborative Cohort, we kick off on November 9th and registration closes on November 8th!
