Soft skills[edit | edit source]

An individual curriculum aiming to train soft skills can connect to theater, pedagogy, psychology and mentor training. A course unit on the psychology of flirting, for instance, is bound to allow interest-driven learning for most teenagers and can be combined with theater and psychology as a scientific aspect. Course units on socializing, small talk and flirting can be interspersed as motivating units into a course that may otherwise not be consistently interesting for all teenagers and may be likely not to receive a grade. Pupils can also implement a Web 2.0 computer dating system or other dating system to motivate further considerations during the design process: What are intended search criteria and what are intended design goals of the system? What psychological considerations play a role? A dating system for pupils should be access restricted but can include neighboring schools, even if the purpose is mostly experimentation, which is what pupils do anyway.
