The DLAB Vestival was a virtual festival *VESTIVAL* held in May 2021 for educators exploring the theme of overcoming personal barriers using technology and creativity.
Digital Learning Across Boundaries 2: Developing Changemakers, or DLAB2 for short, is a three year project inspired by the changemaker movement, which seeks to build the skills and attributes for individuals to find innovative solutions to society’s challenges. University lecturers, teachers and trainee teachers have worked together with school pupils through a connected classrooms approach in Spain, Norway, Belgium, Denmark and England. Through various activities that come together in a Virtual Festival (a Vestival), we explored our own fears and limitations. Together we sought to find solutions and helped each other push our personal limits. Vestival participants found out about the outcomes of our explorations by entering the Padlet of Vestival tents. Inside each tent are examples of our activities and opportunities to try out ideas.
