What do you think about adding empathy to the school curriculum? The people at Ashoka are trying to make that happen. Actually, they’re trying to do more than add it to the curriculum, they’re trying to start a revolution.
Start Empathy, an initiative of Ashoka, seeks to unleash demand for empathy as a core 21st century skill. You can check out a series of videos here. They’re done by Ed Stockman and explains empathy in a super cute and clever way. I think they’d be great to watch with the kids.
