Empathy + Social Media = A Stronger Community!

A session at 51st Biennial National Association of the Deaf (NAD) Conference

Thursday 5th July, 2012

8:30am to 10:00am (CST)

Why aren’t there many collaborative efforts in the deaf community? Being collaborative means to be ‘understanding’ of each other, or empathetic. With the rise of technology and social media, where is the limit in how much we say? Is it harmful or truthful? Social media IS free speech. People are allowed to express their thoughts. Maybe it’s time we conform our thoughts to an empathetic approach to one another. This doesn’t mean that our thoughts are not welcome, instead, we adjust our perspectives to practice empathy.
