“What we want is to awaken the conscience of educators, be they parents or professors. We want them to be aware of the media's potential to educate.”

Norberto Gonzalez Gaitano led a team of communications experts who have found that a misuse of technology and media has contributed to an educational crisis. 

They claim storytelling is an effective teaching method and possibly part of the solution to this problem.

“We receive and absorb moral experience through stories. Thus, the best way to explain things is by narrating, by recounting.”

The project offers a variety of online courses taught by prominent literary scholars and bestselling European authors. Among them are Natalia Sammartín Fenollera, author of no. one international besteller “The Awakening of Miss Prim” and Alessandro D'Avenia, author of Italian bestseller “What Hell Is Not.” The sessions are accessible in English, Spanish and Italian.
