Abstract

The Pedagogy of Listening through soundwalk offers an immersive approach to education, integrating attentive listening as a main tool. This method, anchored in the history of sound art and sound ecology, aims to raise participants' awareness of their sound environment and to develop their critical and creative listening skills. Through concrete examples such as sensitive audio tours and projects around water or the forest, this approach explores sound territories in a contextualized way. Tools such as the digital recorder and interactive maps enrich the experience, while action research promotes interdisciplinarity and social innovation. Despite the challenges related to the coordination of actors and resources, this approach promises to adapt to new territories explored thanks to technological advances and a return to authentic sensory connection. In conclusion, the pedagogy of listening offers stimulating perspectives for rethinking our relationship with soundscapes and promoting better living together in a constantly evolving world.
