Problem Statement

How can we improve active listening to minimise conflict between young people?


Customer / Problem

Teachers acknowledge 98% of young people are involved in verbal conflicts. Parents and teachers need an effective management strategy for resolving these conflicts. 

Listen Ear - Problem


Solution

An app designed to teach and encourage active listening - a practice proven to be an effective catalyst in minimising conflict. The app would moderate conversations  between young people by allocating time frames for each person to have their say. In addition to this, the app would also train young people in active listening habits through a variety of educational games and activities.
