Teaching Students Empathy

This seems like an interesting tool to have in the classroom.

However, there are a few issues that I find with this:

  • Can a teacher know what choices the student made? (otherwise, the teacher would not know if the student still has trouble with empathy.)
  • What about younger children? It seems a bit advanced for young children.
  • Should not be used as the ONLY resource. One-on-one with the teacher (and small-group activities with other students) is still vital to ensure real-life experience.
