Empathy, Special Education and ICTs
During the past decades there have been considerable innovations with the use of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) in many fields and sectors. In many settings ICTs have become an important element of the learning and teaching process. All social groups have been helped including children and adults with special educational needs. In this paper we provide a brief overview of the most representative articles for applications used for assessment, intervention and development of empathy which is an important skill that researches indicate that people with special educational needs lack of it. Empathy is a complex form of psychological inference in which observation, memory, knowledge, and reasoning are combined to yield insights into the thoughts and feelings of others.
