Course Description:
This is an immersive experience of storytelling that focus on the development of soft skill such as:
Ability to listen, considering the 5 levels of listening:
#1 Ignoring
The lowest level of listening is called ignoring – not listening at all. If you are distracted by anything while talking to a user, they can get the impression that you are ignoring them.
We will have an approach for kids to understand how important it is to be present with our friends and family members. The project-based learning with the story they will create and tell their families is an important way of creating a healthy and effective way of communicating.

#2 – Pretend Listening
Pretend listening is most easily explained in the face-to-face conversation. We will have a game where kids will pretend that one is listening to the other, just pretending and repeating the frases, and for this experience, we will learn that sometimes we need to listen first, and understand the other before being understood.

#3 – Selective Listening
During selective listening we pay attention to the speaker as long as they are talking about things we like or agree with. If they move on to other things we slip down to pretend listening or ignore them altogether.
We will create groups and ask kids to share things about what they like, and have random subjects that will challenge us to talk about it, even if they don’t know.
This is an effective way to develop humility and kindness, to understand that there is much more that we don’t know than what we know.

#4 – Attentive Listening
Attentive listening occurs when we carefully listen to the other person, but while they are speaking we are deciding whether we agree or disagree, determining whether they are right or wrong. Instead of paying close attention to the other person, we’re formulating our response to what he or she is saying.
To develop this skill we will have a storytelling activity that runs in a group, everyone needs to pay attention because we are going to co-create a story together. This activity is going to develop focus, attention, compassion and respect when others are talking. And the most important of all, adaptability. To get a story and shape it and make it different.

#5 Empathic Listening
Also known as empathetic listening, the top level of listening. This lesson is going to work to inspire kids and the group to create social and emotional intelligence skills to communicate.
We are going to work on this by telling the story that the group co-create together. This is also a story that kids can share with their parents at the Halloween Party.
