Stage:Empathize Stage
Assignment: In Their Shoes

Taking a walk in someone else’s shoes is a great way to develop empathy and look at the world from a new point of view.  See for yourself how everyday activities become more challenging for English language learners or anyone who faces a language barrier.  This activity requires a little prep work by the teacher…read the instructions before the students arrive.  To complete the activity and earn your Empathizer Card, upload photos and text or video and audio describing your experience.  Why is empathy an important skill for designers to develop?
