Empatico is currently available for educators who work directly with students (ages 7-11) in a classroom or after school/weekend program, who have internet access and a computer with a camera, and whose students speak English or can converse in English with some teacher assistance.
Teachers know their students best and whether Empatico would fit their classroom needs and student abilities. As long as the sign up requirements are met, we encourage educators in a variety of settings to try Empatico, including special education teachers, language teachers, library information specialists, art teachers, and teachers who specialize in a core content area (e.g., science, social studies, literacy). Homeschool groups are welcome to sign up, though we recommend a class size comparable to that of a typical school classroom (15-25 students). Once you have been matched, we recommend discussing your classroom setting and student population with your partner teacher using the text or video chat features built into your teacher dashboard.
