Digital technology offers new learning opportunities by enabling access to additional learning environments and resources that can be used to attract and integrate learners. Digital technologies facilitate problem-based and interactive learning and enable a personalisation of the learning experience. However, successfully leveraging the potential of digital technologies for education is first and foremost a question of improving education and the focus when integrating new technologies into educational settings needs to focus on the pedagogy.
The objective of the GAME-CHANGER project is to harness the pervasiveness of digital and social media environments to build entrepreneurial capacity throughout Europe. In pursuit of this objective partners will:
(1) support front-line youth workers to develop new professional competences that enable them to harness the potential of online, challenge-based education to build the entrepreneurial attributes of their youth target group;
(2) develop a suite of WebQuest resources to support the acquisition of entrepreneurial competences; (3) develop a bespoke WebQuest platform where all the challenge-based learning resources developed can be accessed by youth workers and youth target group members.
|The aim of the project is to build entrepreneurial capacity in Europe by using digital and social media environments.|

The Rural Hub was set up as an association by a group of education, training and rural development professionals as a response to the impact of the economic crisis on small rural villages and towns in Ireland. Since it was first established in 2012, The Rural Hub has been providing a wide range of training and capacity development programmes to local residents and community groups. We specialise in the area of community development and have developed a number of local initiatives to support the social inclusion of disadvantaged rural youth, migrant communities and isolated older residents. We work with these groups, using creative approaches and the testing of digital media resources to support greater social cohesion among local communities in County Cavan. We have a developed network of county-wide stakeholders who support our work on a thematic basis.

Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. (JKPeV) was founded in 2004 with the aim of providing opportunities for young people and adults to develop and use their soft and professional skills and stimulate their creativity and entrepreneurship through non-formal learning methods. Located in Dresden, Germany, JKPeV is dedicated to promoting the EU citizenship and active participation of its citizens.
We organise international Projects, Events and Trainings for young people and adults in Dresden and abroad, with a focus on assisting the cultural enrichment of the city of Dresden and the Free State of Saxony while also promoting the cultural diversity of the European Union. Inviting foreign educators and participants to our projects kindles an intercultural dialogue in the heart of an already highly artistic hub -Dresden- while on the other hand, including local citizens in our events abroad brings a fresh outlook to familiar problems in the city and a sense of belonging to a greater group – Europe.
