Keynote for the Flat Connections Global Project 17-2

All that we share: We, Them and Us

Here is YOUR challenge:

Watch the video 'All that we Share' (also embedded above).

Consider the following

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Psychologists also talk about 'cognitive empathy' which they call 'Perspective taking' which is when a person is able to imagine themselves in the situation of another.
  • Think about how we build empathy with others.
  • How do we build empathy when we meet people in person?
  • How do we build empathy when we meet people virtually?
  • What do you know and think about the need for empathy?
  • How important is it to have empathy in order to be able to collaborate with others?
  • What strategies are YOU using to build empathy in your cross-classroom, global team?

Share your responses

Use the KEYNOTE FlipGrid topic (also embedded below) to share your responses. You can respond as many times as you like - and we also encourage you to ask questions of others so they can respond to you and start a conversation.
You may also write a blog post on the FCGP Ning (as well as or instead of using FlipGrid). Make sure you tag your blog post Keynote17-2, and if you recorded on FlipGrid add a hyperlink to this recording as well.
(Note: Ning will not allow FlipGrid to be embedded into a post as it does not recognise iframe coding, unfortunately).
