While completing one exchange with a partner classroom can be extremely rewarding, there are numerous benefits to making an Empatico virtual exchange a repeated practice with your students. We encourage you and your partner to have multiple exchanges with one another to help deepen the empathy outcomes in your students, and to build a stronger relationship between your classrooms.
Results from a recent evaluation study suggest Empatico can help narrow the “intergroup empathy gap.” Students were more likely to practice empathy and recognize similarities with peers from different communities. Read more on our blog how Empatico is measuring the effects of virtual exchanges.
