Empathy Machines: Global Education via "Portals"

Mar 7, 2018

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Recording: Empathy Machines: Global Education via "Portals", Mar 7, 2018

Portals are wormholes through the Internet, immersive learning spaces housed in repurposed shipping containers that foster face-to-face engagement with strangers around the world. We’ll show how Portals connected kids in Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza, Honduras, Milwaukee, and Greenwich, CT, for storytelling, poetry reading, dancing, and painting. Portals, called “empathy machines” by one journalist, redefine what it means to educate for global competency.
