Web Tool That Encourages Humane Digital Interactions
The Small Online Kindness (SOK) Generator is a web tool that encourages educators to consider how to best express the kindest and most empathetic intention when they communicate remotely with another person. Maybe a phone call instead of several emails … Maybe moving to Bcc for all but the essential participants on an email chain … Maybe finding ways, again and again, to signal that they trust their team. Try the SOK generator to see some small kindnesses formatted as a website experience. On the webpage, you can also sign up for a daily email with a Small Online Kindness and contribute to the project.
