LISTEN survey results

The LISTEN survey focused on assessing the status storytelling has among adult educators. It asked for interests and experiences with storytelling applied in educational contexts and expored the learning needs of the target groups addressed.
Another topic we asked for was in how far the idea to use radio as medium to give refugees a voice is perceived suitable and attractive to be applied with refugees.
The results show that storytelling is far more wide spread as method of education than one would initially think. Also there is great appreciation and motivation of educators to learn more about the LISTEN approach.

A summary of the results can be viewed here: LISTEN_summary survey results.
