24 Mar Learning from Intercultural Storytelling
LISTEN is a two year project (2016-2018), co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission and the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research. LISTEN means „Learning from Intercultural Storytelling” and the project is based on the beneficial effects of storytelling for learning.
The project’s aim is to use storytelling, in its many forms, as educational approach for the work with refugees: to support language learning, exchange about cultural differences, create visions etc.
LISTEN has explored different approaches to storytelling and how radio and other forms of audio broadcasting (e.g. podcasting) can be used to share the stories.
Based on the research and practical experiences LISTEN will create a handbook for trainers – and “a collection of refugee stories from all over Europe that shall create awareness, support inclusion and give a helping hand to those who wish to set out for this journey too.”
