During registration, teachers are asked to select at least 2 activities they would want to do with their partner classroom, provide the age of their students, and choose the times in a typical week that their classroom is available to meet their partner classroom over live video. Matches are made between two teachers with the same activity selection, overlapping availability, and student ages no more than 1 year apart. Additionally, teachers will be matched with classrooms at least 300 miles away. Currently, teachers can only be matched with one partner teacher at a time.
Once teachers are signed up, they can edit their activity selection and available times in their teacher dashboard by logging into their account.
We try to create long-distance matches so students can connect with peers outside of their community. However, as Empatico is new and still growing our network, you might be matched with a teacher within your own country. Nonetheless, many Empatico teachers have found that there's tremendous value in students connecting with peers who live in a different community, even within their own country!
