How I Use It
I definitely would use this product in my teaching again without reservation. It was easily incorporated into my lessons and the students (and I) enjoyed the experience immensely.
Empatico is an incredible platform for students and teachers to connect around the world. For those teachers looking for a way to extend their students’ learning beyond the classroom, but are not sure where to start, this is it! Empatico has made it so easy; everything from the connection to the lessons are set up for you. Furthermore, there are various lessons to choose from, they can be easily modified to address all students’ needs, and they are standards based. Empatico provides students the opportunity to learn through authentic interactions. Since student engagement and interest was high, they began to drive their own learning The best part of the the entire platform is the connections that the students make. My students now consider their partner classmates their friends and have asked to keep in touch even after the school year ends. It was a wonderful experience that we will all take with us.
