Article 18: New Erasmus+ Sport project, titled ‘Virtual reality sports Interaction Between European Schools’ (VIBES) presented at WPEA International Conference 2023

We are very happy to announce that our Erasmus+ Sport project, titled ‘Virtual reality sports Interaction Between European Schools’ (VIBES) (Project number: 101133143) has been funded and starts very soon!

This innovative Erasmus+ Sport project intents to train Physical Education (PE) teachers in the use and exploitation of Virtual reality (VR) technologies in PE classes and in the design of learning experiences using VR, so as to open up the potential of VR in schools for the promotion of physical activity and sports, increase the interest and motivation of pupils to engage with physical activity and sports inside and in out-of-school settings, thus reducing sedentary behaviours, while at the same time, contribute to PE teachers’, pupils’ and relevant stakeholders’ digital readiness and competency’.

Consortium partners:

  • Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) (coordinator)
  • University of Central Lancashire (UCLan Cyprus)
  • Polytechnic of Leiria Portugal (IPLeiria)
  • INQUIRIUM LTD
  • University Sports Center of Palermo (CUS Palermo)
  • International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) (Associated Partner)

VIBES has already been presented at the World Physical Education Alliance (WPEA) International Conference that was organized between the 1st and 3rd of November 2023, in Shanghai at East China Normal University. With this great communication opportunity for our project with 300+ attendees in the cohort and more than 30000 individuals attending the session via live streaming, VIBES has already set the ground for international collaborations and wider impact.

Stay tuned for more exciting activities to come!
