EP95: How do you use Empathy Maps? The Staffroom Podcast with Chey & Pav

In Episode 95 of The Staffroom Podcast, Chey and Pav reflect on their use of Empathy Maps at the start of the school year. Inspired by Educational Consultant Jorge Valenzuela and his article and video on Edutopia.org, Chey and Pav brought Empathy Maps into their middle school classrooms to work on some goal setting as well as relationship and culture building in the classroom. The results were fantastic in many different ways. Listen to find out more of how they were used and the results of their exploration.  Here's Jorge's work on Edutopia, which was referenced during the episode, in case you'd like to give it a go in your space!  https://www.edutopia.org/video/building-relationships-empathy-maps A rich discussion with several a-ha! moments throughout!
