There are many ways through which communication takes place in the classroom. A teacher should know how to use these methods to futher improve her classsroom communication skill.
When eye contact is used between teacher and student(or any other pair of people), this shows that the person is interested in what the other person has to say. It opens a extra communication channel which allows you to show feelings such as interst or concern to the other person.
A happy facial expression will make the students assume that the teacher is someone who they can approach to ask anything regarding the subject at hand. A cold and strict teacher would make the students keep away because they may think that the teacher is not willing to help them.
If a teacher sits down and throughout the whole lesson stays there talking, this gives the impressions that the teacher is not interested in the students. Also if the teacher is writing on the board she or he should do it in a way so as not to ignore the students behind her. The students may lose interest and start talking with each other while the teacher is writing notes. If the teacher moves around the class, this shows his/her interest in all of the class, not just at some particular students whoo happened to be sitting infront of the teachers desk
