Empathic Environment ==> Confidence & Creativity
A key ingredient to the future of educational design, empathy is linked to creative thinking, encouraging Gen Z-ers to discover new perspectives and learn from each other. That creativity manifests in various ways for different Gen Z-ers: some find stimulus in each other and others when the room is quiet. Supporting both methods of focus is essential to creating an empathic classroom or workspace.
Developing a sense of empathy can also boost confidence, instilling the belief that there is possibility and newness in every day, a key part of Gen Z's formative early career years. When Gen Z is encouraged to be curious about the world around them, they discover a new way of looking at their experiences and develop empathy for their peers.
