Some definitions:

eliciting
This is the difficult art of using suitable cues, pictures and increasingly desperate gestures in order to allow students to contribute language they don’t actually know and thus feel included and motivated. This indispensable teaching technique is particularly effective with beginners. See also explaining.

explaining
This is not a TEFL term and its use will, quite rightly, get you thrown off Diploma courses. See also eliciting.
