In the first case, one student took over the role of a teacher. He had to act as an empathic teacher, meaning he had to feel the emotions of “his” pupils very well (joy, sorrow, suffering, anger …). In the second case, the other two students should praise the child when the first “sparks” are observed, the first signs of empathy. We agreed to make a correlation with the art culture where by drawing or painting we made our watch more creative and complete.
