Understanding communications

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Christian Palacios

Communication (from the Latin commūnicāre, meaning “to share”) is the act of conveying meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and rules.

The main steps inherent to all communication are the formation of communicative motivation or reason, message composition, method of communication such as digital data, written text, speech, pictures, gestures and so on, and using a specific communication channel or medium.

This module looks at human communication in terms of using the senses, language and comprehension, thinking and memory, visual and motor skills and words and meaning.

We will explore

  • Using our senses to communicate
  • Language comprehension and expression
  • Thinking and memory exercises
  • Visual and motor skills
  • Words and their meanings


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

All modules are delivered to you via email through a downloadable link.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans – KS2 to KS5
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
