Using empathy to solve wicked problems: staring ambiguity in the face and still walking forwards

The TEDtalk below asks some interesting questions for educators:  how do we prepare students for the future when the future is constantly changing?  How do we prepare students, when we don’t know the answers ourselves?  Sami Nerenberg argues that students want to put their education into action and solve the world’s problems by empathizing with those in it and designing projects that will have local and social impact.  Human-centred design involves taking in the world in order to give back to it.  In Design for American students are asking what is the smallest change they can make that will have the greatest impact.  There are many interesting answers.
