In one of the Human Centred Design sessions we ran this week with a year 3 class, we talked about empathy. We started the discussion by asking – what is empathy? Some children didn’t know what it means. Some children said it has something to do with feelings. One of the children mentioned that the teacher once told them “Walk in someone else’s shoes”. This was a trigger to a whole new conversation as someone else respond to it by saying “But it can be difficult to do if the shoe size is smaller than yours” and another joined in saying “And what happens if the shoe size is bigger than yours?” This was a priceless conversation with a class of 8 years old, on what it really means to walk IN someone else’s shoes.
