Using Spheros to Foster Empathy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, participants will learn how Sphero robotic balls are being used in classrooms and other learning spaces to help students develop empathy. Using Spheros, students reenact stories and narratives with greater engagement. The students develop a deepened understanding of the challenges faced by literary characters and historical figures. Spheros can be programmed to reflect aspects of different characters. Lesson plans and examples of student work will be provided. The session will include an opportunity to experience the use of Spheros in a hands-on activity.
