BTW your disagree signal in Thailand is buffalo horns, meaning “stupid”. Just a thought.

I found this very interesting. As a teacher there is constant feedback from your students. It also can tell you who is engaged in the lesson. This is also a way a teacher can be assessing her students at any given time and in any given lesson. It develops a culture of active learning.

I like the hand signals might be something to try with my overly chatty class.

It's great, just like when people dive, they also use silent signals to express themselves in the sea.
