Activating Empathy: A Roadmap to Changemaker Classrooms – Course

The ability to understand what someone is feeling” – that’s the textbook definition of empathy. But when put into practice, empathy means a whole lot more.

It means the ability to grasp the many sides of today’s complex problems and the capacity to collaborate with others to solve them; it means being as good at listening to the ideas of others as articulating your own; it means being able to lead a team one day, and participate as a team member the next. In today’s rapidly changing world, empathy is critical to our success – at home, at school, and in the workplace.

By completing this free course, you will gain practical tips and ideas from 60 leading elementary schools, 21 social entrepreneurs, and leading experts from across the Ashoka network on how to instill empathy in children, preparing them for the world ahead.
