 It is a two way process by which the messages are transmitted from
the source to the receiver.
 It is the process by which information, decisions and directions pass
through a social system and the ways in which knowledge, opinions
and attitudes are formed or modified
 It is a process by which two or more people exchange ideas, facts,
feelings or impressions in a way that each gains common
understanding of a message bringing the sender and receiver together.
 Gestures and symbols are very important in the process of

Visual Aids
 Ensure more effective communication.
 Attracts the receiver through the sense organs
 Useful in achieving the objectives by creating interest, motivation,
desire and activity.
 Classification of audio visual is based on the sense organs involved:
 Audio- radio, tape recorder, telephone, public address system,
songs, slogans etc.
 Visual- These are of two types:
 Non- projected- posters, charts, pictures, models, flash cards,
cartoons, black- board, bulleti- boards, handbills, paper,
clippings, exhibitions
 Projected- Slides, film strips, silent films, overhead projections,
opaque projections, slide projections, close circuit TV, films,
television, VCR, drama, puppetry and songs and dance

Types of Communication
 One-way Communication (Didactic Method)
 The flow of communication is one way from the
communicator to the audience.
 e.g. lecture method in class rooms
 Drawbacks
 knowledge is imposed
 learning is authoritative
 less audience participation
 no feedback
 doe not influence human behaviour
Home Science Facilitator Jasmina Sangani
Types of Communication
 Two- way communication (Socratic Method)
 Both the communicator and the audience take
 The audience may raise questions, and add their
own information, ideas and opinions to the
 Learning process is active and democratic
 More likely to influence behaviour than oneway communication

Media Systems
 The total communication effort is based on three
media systems:
 Interpersonal communication
 Mass media
 Traditional or folk
Science Facilitator Jasmina
Interpersonal Communication
 It is the most common channel.
 It is also called face-to-face communication
 It is more persuasive and effective than any
other form of communication
 It is important in influencing the decisions of
the undecided persons
 The
communication over mass media for creation
of motivational effect has been well
Home Science Facilitator Jasmina Sangani
Mass Media
 Channels of mass media: TV, radio, printed media.
 It has the advantage of reaching a relatively larger
population in a shorter time as compared to other
means of communication.
 It is a one-way channel of communication
 It carries messages from the centre to the peripheri
 Feedback systems are poorly organized
 They are usually not effective in changing established
modes of behaviour.
Home Science Facilitator Jasmina Sangani
Folk Media
 Network of traditional or folk media includes
folk dances, singing, dramas, Nautanki in Uttar
Pradesh, Burrakatha in Andhra Pradesh and
Harikatha in Western India besides informal
group gatherings, caste or religious meetings.
 These are important channels of communication
close to the cultural values of the rural

 It is the reaction of the audience to the message.
 If the message is not clear or otherwise not acceptable the
audience may reject it outright
 The feedback thus provides an opportunity to the sender to
modify the message and render it acceptable.
 In interpersonal communication the feedback is immediate.
 In mass communication it takes sometime to get feedback
 Feedback is generally obtained through opinion polls,
attitude surveys and interviews.
 It can rectify transmission errors.
