Empathetic teachers enhance children’s motivation and academic skills, such as reading, writing and arithmetic skills.
A positive atmosphere created by the teacher also safeguards and increases children’s motivation for learning, according to the Finnish First Steps study currently ongoing at the University of Eastern Finland, the University of Jyväskylä and the University of Turku.
The significance of empathy and a warm attitude in classroom remains an understudied phenomenon in educational sciences.
However, research has shown that the interaction between the teacher and the pupil is more important for learning outcomes than structural factors such as educational materials and class sizes.
