Empathy Online? Not this week. A Side Bar Discussion
his week, I was planning on focusing on how empathy can be taught online using simulations like Hunger 101. We’ll cover that soon. We’re going to take a detour, instead.
In all honesty, I, like many of you, I imagine, am having a very difficult time focusing on the topic of empathy. Why? I keep seeing the complete opposite occurring. We are losing empathy in such large public ways, and watching this playing out online is disheartening at best.
