This project will make it possible to teach young people in the public school to literary observe things from another perspective. Through new technology with the Virtual Reality the young people can be placed with some glasses and try to experience another perspective. This can for an example be from a bullied classmate's view. The new knowledge and technology will put a new and modern focus on "how is it like to be in my shoes". It can be used as an active tool to teach young people more about the complex social understanding and more importantly to brighten their focus on mutual empathy.
