Abstract: The aim of this research is to reflect on the importance, since preschool, of both verbal and non-verbal language, which is the unintentional communication or body language. This is done to assure a better self-awareness, to establish positive and effective relationships, to prevent conflicts and to empathically understand oneself and other people’s feelings. Furthermore, students are digital natives, so they require digitally equipped environments, with which they are familiar from an early age. On the other hand, teachers are digital immigrants, because they have only come in contact with digital devices as adults; as a consequence, they pay the price for the generation gap which distinguishes them from digital natives, whose mindset is more involved in the dynamics of change and whose lives are symbiotically connected to technology. Therefore, teachers need an adequate training for media management in classrooms. The review process focused on 36 international articles (20 articles and 16 investigations) and 4811participants; the inclusion.
