Communication is a process whereby information is
enclosed in a package and is channeled and imparted by
a sender to a receiver via some medium. The receiver
then decodes the message and gives the sender a
feedback. All forms of communication require a sender, a
message, and an intended recipient, however the receiver
need not be present or aware of the sender's intent to
communicate at the time of communication in order for
the act of communication to occur.
To build effective Communication Skills students must learn to:
Communicate using digital media and environments to support personal and group
Share information efficiently and effectively using appropriate digital media and
Communicate thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively to different audiences using
various media and formats.
Students must be able to effectively analyze
and process the overwhelming amount of
communication in their lives today.
Which information sources are accurate and
which are not and how it can be used.
The power of modern media and the ubiquity
of communication technologies in all aspects
of life make teaching strong communication
skills even more important.
