Transcript of NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION
Nonverbal communication is the process of communication through sending and receiving signals between people. All of our nonverbal behaviors—the gestures we make, the way we sit, how fast or how loud we talk, how close we stand, how much eye contact we make—send strong messages. These messages don't stop when you stop speaking either. Even when you're silent, you're still communicating nonverbally. Basically it is sending and receiving messages in a variety of ways without the use of verbal codes (words).
Oftentimes, what comes out of our mouths and what we communicate through our body language are two totally different things. When faced with these mixed signals, the listener has to choose whether to believe your verbal or nonverbal message, and, in most cases, they're going to choose the nonverbal because it's a natural, unconscious language that broadcasts our true feelings and intentions in any given moment.
- Using non-verbal communication in the classroom can be beneficial for both the teacher and his or her students.
- Practicing non-verbal cues allow teachers to become better receivers of students´ and also provides them with the ability to send positive signals that emphasize students´ learning.
- Non-verbal communication allows teachers to spare their voices and create a calmer classroom environment. For instance: when students are being too loud, a teacher can stop and put up one hand to signify the class to stop talking.
- Using non-verbal communication is a great way for teachers who have a multicultural classroom to get all of their students on the same page. For example: A thumbs up gesture represents approval or someone doing a good job.
HOW CAN IT BE APPLIED FOR CLASSROOMS?
- Teachers also use non-verbal communication in classrooms with special needs students.
- Eye contact is also a key in non-verbal communication. By establishing eye contact with students, a teacher is able to let their students know they are listening and give them his or her full attention.
- It is important that teachers use a lot of practice to perfect the art of non-verbal communication.
- In order to use non-verbal communication in the classroom successfully, teachers must set clear and understandable expectations at the very beginning of the school year.
- Non-verbal communication is not just for early childhood education, these methods can be used for students in high school and college as well. For example: if a student is giving a presentation, but is talking too fast, the teacher can lift his or her hand and slowly bring it down.
- So, non-verbal communication is part of everything we do.
- Not only does non-verbal communication have advantages for the students, but it also helps teachers save their voices, keep a calmer classroom and allow students from all cultures to be on the same page.
- Non-verbal communication expressions and gestures are not the same around the world. For example: the gesture “thumbs up”, which is a positive gesture in the United State, may mean something very different in other cultures. In Nigeria, for example, the “thumbs up” gesture is a rude insult.
- Another gesture that can be taken completely differently depending upon where you live is nodding the head.
- Non-verbal communication meanings do not always stay the same. Sometimes meanings change over time, or meanings change when cultures mix together.
- Finally we can conclude surely saying that non-verbal communication may be the most important part of communicating with other people.
