Question and answer
I recently heard a story about a misunderstanding via email. A school sent out a mass email to a group of students' parents and one of the parents responded with something that many others found
offensive. She had only her first name as her signature, which also happened to be the first name of the principal. Many of the parents thought that her offensive response had been sent out by the principal and were very angry until it was cleared up. Misunderstandings like those sometimes happen with modern technology like email. In an additional paragraph, explain why you believe the form of technology used was a poor fit for the message. For example, how did the limits of the channel add to the misinterpretation or misdirection of the communication? Consider elements (from the lesson) such as context, encoding/decoding, feedback, lean medium channel, noise, plus nonverbal and verbal code.
I'm sorry but I have no way to answer that question without being able to read the material first. What message is it asking about? What was the lesson about?

How can a lack of understanding cause a problem in your chosen career?
Weegy: In terms of how young people made decisions about educational pathways, parents were the most commonly used source of information and advice for young people. [ Many young people (42%) reported finding the process of accessing career guidance difficult and one quarter claimed to have received no guidance from any source at all. Young people also showed concern about limited work experience and how this impacted on the transition to employment. The report suggested that parents and young people both tend to have very fixed ideas about academic versus vocational routes. These perceptions are rarely challenged by parents or teachers. In order to counteract this, schools and careers services need to provide more advice on vocational options. The full report, New Directions: Young People's and Parents' Views of Vocational Education and Careers Guidance, is available here. ] (More)
