Can technology teach empathy?




E(mpathy) = ET2

Can technology facilitate teaching and learning empathy?

We invite you to join us and and engage in a discussion that will shape today and tomorrow generation. With the help of our astounding speakers, we seek to understand the root of empathy, question if such an intuitive human skill can be taught and learned in school, and investigate whether technology can support in its development and how.

We know that the our question is complex and to keep the conversation structured and flowing we divided it into three main topics.

EMPATHY - What do you know about empathy? What is your opinion on its importance and how would you develop it?

EDUCATION -  Have you thought about the future of education? How is empathy taught  in schools? Are there any instruments and ways to analyze their impact?  How will this impact the future generations? What do you see as missing in it today? Want to improve it? 

TECHNOLOGY - Can tech be a facilitator or inhibitor on teaching empathy? In which way?

These are some of the questions we want to start with. Other will come on the way.

Our speakers represent the Swedish and Finnish educational system and the entrepreneurial tech sector. 

We are seeing this event as a multi participative talk, so please come prepared to give your input, ask questions and brainstorm ideas.

The rules are simple:

1. We appreciate diversity of spirit and ideas.

2. We value knowledge on social sciences as well as natural sciences. They both come along in our community.

3. We appreciate open mindedness and kindness.

4. And… we want compassionate individuals to join us.
