Abstract:
The traditional ways of teaching are being supplemented with new tools and new educational approaches in order make education more authentic and aligned with the world beyond school. To prepare young people for a rapidly changing and less predictable environment, policy directives have urged the development of entrepreneurial attitudes and abilities through an education relating closely to the surrounding society (Commission, 2015; OECD, 1992). Simultaneously, new technology is suggested to provide new opportunities for learning in an increasingly digitalised society (Samuelson-Wardrip & Shaphiro, 2016; Brinson, 2015; Cheng, Lin, & She, 2015). Although the entry of ICT and entrepreneurship into the field of education may both work to prepare students for an environment beyond school, few scholars have investigated if and how these processes are interrelated, or how they might complement each other. By adopting a sociocultural perspective on learning, and incorporating literature on combined physical and virtual world contexts, this qualitative study offers insights into how various mediating tools used to relate education to the world beyond school may influence the extent to which primary school students develop entrepreneurial attitudes and abilities. The results indicate that computer-aided learning combining virtual and physical world contexts could support the development of entrepreneurial attitudes and abilities
