The Evolution of Communication

Lets Talk!

Here's how it happened, in order:

  • nonverbal communication (drums, smoke signals, and hand gestures)
  • verbal communication (speech or storytelling)
  • symbols (cave drawings, hieroglyphics, and ideograms)
  • writing and the alphabet, which prompted inventions like the typewriter and printing press
  • sound communication (telegraphs and telephone)
  • advanced communication (computers, the internet, email and video chat)
