Cultivating Empathy or "Why is she smiling?"

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

What happens when bullies use social media?
What happens when a kid, bully or bullied, shoots a video and posts it to YouTube? (The answers aren’t all bad.)
And why is she smiling?

A conversation with educators about cultivating empathy in our students to combat bullying in and out of school in an increasingly digital environment. Participants will leave with a wealth of powerful visual material and discussion starters they can use in their schools with their students. We’ll share ideas to effectively lead these sort of difficult conversations and share resources we can easily access anywhere any time.

[While it’s not required to attend the session it would be a good idea to have a twitter account before arriving at BLC12.]
