If you want to know more about what digital body language is, Jo wrote an epic blog post all about it, ‘What is digital body language‘.
Jo’s talk was titled, ‘Embracing digital body language’ and below are some of the tweets that delegates and Jo shared.
Early on in the talk Jo asked the below question to the delegates and got them to discuss it amongst themselves.
Some great conversation about what elements of language people use to explain themselves & get to know each other as part of my #DigitalBodyLanguage presentation at #ELFconf pic.twitter.com/i0FIfdd3SQ

#ELFconf @LightbulbJo giving useful insights on digital body language. Write so personality comes through. Personal brand says much e.g. avatars and profiles. Emoticons. Sharing and vulnerability. Even animated gifs pic.twitter.com/IhfwnsPIeL

Jo has found this area fascinating and has done two blogs on it.
Text Personality – People think you’ll miss out on so much by not speaking face to face or on the phone. There’s a certain amount that’s true about that, I’m not going to argue. But like any communication or detail, there’s a lot more richness you can get without realising.
Reading mood and tone of text – I’m digging in deeper to the idea of being able to read the digital, or virtual, body language of someone without seeing them face to face.

Wonderful use of artistic talents to take notes in the session, what a great way to keep it all fresh for when you look at it later.
A great and interesting session from Jo Cook, hopefully you all enjoyed it as much as she enjoyed delivering it! pic.twitter.com/unjqDhzdiR

If you are interested in the area of digital body language and virtual classroom communication, Jo has merged her knowledge on both fields into the below blog.
Face to face communication and the virtual classroom – This blog post details research about how our brains react to different types of communication and what this means for how we design and deliver virtual classroom training sessions.
