Why should listening be taught as a skill in school?
Our kids live in the world we have subsequently created which now includes visuals. Bring visuals together with listening and you have their attention. Stand up and lecture and you represent the dinosaur. It is not a listening skill question, it is realising that our kids can multi task and input audio and visual. If you only give them a listening "Julian Treasure" lecture, they will rightfully groan!!! (: We moved on from monotone input in the 1990ies.

How are we going to get Conscious Listening into schools?
Hi Jimmy, today I did a wonderful bike ride through forest around a beautiful lake. This is what we have to build as a normal event into our week. Listening is learning. Silence and nature are nutrients for us to revitalize to be better able to meet the more complex challenges of listening and learning than we had to meet previously.

This is a dinosaur question. Learning has moved faster than you appreciate. The next generation have been long combining audio with visual to enhance learning with great results. Julian Treasure's 20% listening learning result was understood by up and coming educators in the 1980ies. Thez moved learning forwards. Check out Al Gore"s TED ebook lecture. We will soon have smell and touch in the same learning paradigm. Forget the learinng apologists

Julian Treasure: 5 ways to listen better
1970ies academia, did not manage to move forwards on this very important subject, 1980ies jargon dressed up with 1990ies salesmanship. Take away the bells and whistles and the dumb "wife" jokes and you have a mediocre academic in prime time demonstrating how he has wasted his career. SAD ! I feel sorry for this failed guy who missed the multi dimensional development of listening over the last 30 years. Listening has become much more complex than painted by Julian and the listening world has becoming bigger than Edinburgh. Maybe his lecture was just an apology for the UK. I find that Asian listening skills are quite the opposite to Julians scenario.
