Empatico creates a space in which groups can meet from across the planet to share experiences, ideas, and learning. The digital platform runs through teachers, who can communicate by sending messages, videos, and images.
Teachers can use the platform simply to connect, leading students in their own activities, as needed. Or they can tap Empatico’s library of activities so groups can find a common task to work on together, within the platform. To help create empathy between groups, many activities in the library focus on sharing thoughts, expressing emotions, and carrying out actions as a joined group. Teachers can record sessions for a follow-up class in which students discuss what went on and how they can progress. Sign-up is free, as is use of the platform.
