Can children really learn empathy through video games?

Empathy is a human emotion that involves connecting with other humans. So can such an intrinsically human experience be taught through computer games? Researchers at the Department of Human Centred Computing at Monash University think it can be. Ling Wu is a Research Fellow at the Department. She explains why she thinks this is a valid way to teach young children empathy, and how it might help other children with their social cues.For more on the research check out the Monash University website.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
