During the first month of 2012 four eTwinning training events took place in Bulgaria. Two of them were conducted in kindergartens – in Sofia and Pleven, and the other two in a secondary school in Dobrich. The topic of the trainings was enhancement of teachers’ ICT skills through work in the eTwinning portal.
