* Schedule: Carter will be presenting a breakout session with Dr. Tripp titled “Soul-tiplication: How Learning Another Language Makes Us More Human and Increases Empathy” on Thursday, March 4th 1:00-2:00 pm MST.

Breakout Session Description: Charlemagne said “To have another language is to possess a second soul.” While we know that a person’s language can communicate their worldview, few realize how much a person’s language shapes their worldview. Research shows that knowing more than one language increases one’s empathy. And in today’s climate of division, mistrust, and fear, empathy is exactly what we need to overcome those challenges. Educators and social scientists are beginning to harness the powerful technologies of today to teach empathy, as well as other languages, to younger and younger learners.
