Unit 4 P1 Khaoula Hamaili P1: Explain the different types of business information their sources and purposes. Introduction: In this piece of coursework I am going to be talking about communication and explain all the different types of communication there are. I will also be mentioning the different ways CCA use communication. I will also add sources used by CCA to communicate with their students. Lastly I will finish this piece of coursework with a conclusion summarising what I have done. Definition of communication Communication skills include face to face conversation, telephonic conversation, interviews, group discussions, meetings, speeches etc. Communication is an exchange of facts, ideas, opinions or emotions by two or more persons talking to each other and understanding. Communication is only successful when both the sender and the receiver understand the same information because of the communication. By successfully getting your message across, you convey your thoughts and ideas effectively. When not successful, the thoughts and ideas that you actually send do not necessarily reflect what you think, causing a communications breakdown. Being able to communicate effectively is therefore essential if you want to build a successful career. To do this, you must understand what your message is, what audience you are sending it to, and how it will perceive. ...read more.


Posters: posters are used around the school to send people messages of any upcoming events, clubs or trips that will be happening. Posters are used by visual and written communication. It takes time to make a poster because you have to make sure you include the right information so you are writing the information on a poster. The visual part is the school looking at the posters and reading it. Workshops: Workshops are a very quick and easy way of communicating with the audience because you have all their attention. So this is Oral communication as you are in a face-to-face communication between two or more individuals. Presentations: presentations are used in meetings, assembly's and classes. This is a very good way of talking to your audience as they would be listening to what you are saying and looking at the presentation that you have written. What is the purpose of each of the sources? Teachers: the purpose of teachers informing students about their progress is very important for the student. This is so that the student knows what current grade they are on and how well they are progressing. If the teacher has told them there progress is not good enough then the student will know and will start to change it. ...read more.


Nonverbal communication can include vocal sounds that are not words such as grunts, sighs, and whimpers. Even when actual words are being used, there are nonverbal sounds such as voice tone, pacing of speech and so forth. When you use non-verbal communication you can use your hands to move them around or your body to get the message across without saying a word. On-screen communication is the same as any other communication but it's produced on-screen. This can be a presentation, TV, animations, audio, radio and graphics. This type of communication is mostly used in assemblies and conferences/meetings. Multimedia information can be text, graphics, animations, video, date and so on. Apart from all these multiple types of media, on-screen communication can include video games. Nowadays multimedia communication is nearly used for everything as it has taken over TV and DVD's. CCA use this type of communication in assemblies, meetings and also presentations. Web-based information has many benefits in technology, for example; fast broadband help you connect anywhere you want in the world and the speed will be fast. CCA use web-based information to collect information from the web and read information from where ever it has been sent from. Conclusion: Overall in this piece of coursework I have spoken about different types of communication. I have also mentioned the different ways CCA use these types of communication. Lastly I finished off by adding a conclusion. ...read more.
