Our Next FOPL Webinar:
Learning to Read Each Other: The Empathy Toy in Ontario’s Libraries
Date: June 6, 2016
Time: Noon-1 pm.
Reading Fiction increases empathy and this provides another tool to build community and understanding.
Join us on June 6 as we explore the Empathy Toy. Already in schools, offices, makerspaces and libraries across 43 countries, this award-winning communication tool helps players aged 6 – 99 practice a variety of challenging skills related to collaboration, creative dialogue and problem-solving. You will meet Twenty One Toys, the Toronto-based social enterprise behind the Empathy Toy, and will discover specific applications for the Toy in both student programming and staff professional development.
