    Abstract

    Digital Learning Across Boundaries: Developing Changemakers is a three year
    Erasmus+ project involving ten schools and universities across five European
    countries. This research focuses on one strand that involved English and Danish
    partners collaborating on the theme of using technology to support physical activity, or exergaming, during designated ‘international days’.

    • Can digital technologies such as VR and AR help school pupils to develop
    changemaker attributes?
    • How is changemaking demonstrated in practice by pupils through the use of
    digital technologies?
    • Does technology-supported changemaking support the development of
    intercultural awareness?

    We present emerging evidence to support the use of VR and AR tools with mobile devices for

    I. developing empathy and intercultural awareness through collaboration and
    immersion in different spaces
    II. developing an understanding of the changemaker process through blending
    digital and physical learning environments
