During registration, teachers are asked to select activities that they’d like to do with the partner classroom, and times in a typical week that their classroom is available to meet the partner classroom over live video. Every Empatico match consists of two classrooms, and matches are made between two teachers with the same activity selection, overlapping availability, and distance.
We work to create long-distance matches so students can connect with peers outside of their community. However, as Empatico expands and grows our network of teachers, please note that you could be matched with a teacher within your own country. Nonetheless, we at Empatico believe there's tremendous value in students connecting with peers who live in a different community, even within their own country!
Teachers can edit their activity selection and available times in their teacher dashboard by logging into their account.
