This brief provides an overview of academic and grey literature on the role of technology to facilitate intercultural engagement. We focus on the practices undertaken by three key sectors – NGOs and local government, education, and community organisations – that seek to strengthen communication among diverse groups. Much of this research has highlighted that intercultural digital engagement remains more informative than interactive. There is also a need to integrate such engagement collaboratively with diverse groups to ensure there is a transfer of technological knowledge and skills.
