Ever wondered what is life like in Lviv? Or what’s on the curriculum in Chisinau? What kind of technology is most popular in Tbilisi?  eTwinning Plus has been launched, so you can now contact selected schools and teachers in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and (coming soon!) Tunisia.  We hope you will be as enthusiastic as they are to collaborate on educational projects. You can find more information about eTwinning Plus in this article.

e-cultural Kaleidoscope

Europe is a mosaic of multiple cultures, not just those that are part of the old continent, but others from other countries that have influenced the culture of them. It is also a fact that the world's cultures influence each other. Culture is a broad concept, however, in our project, we focus it on three main themes: music, art and cuisine of different countries. Europe has a wide and varied range of materials incorporated by tradition, but also enriched with elements "imported" from other continents. The objective of the "e-cultural Kaleidoscope" project is to familiarize students with the richness of European cultures and to improve mutual understanding between students from different ethnic, while improving their communication skills in foreign language and the use of ICT as a means of communication and expression. Collaboration and common cultural encounters will expand the horizons of students and the cross-curricular nature of the project will help develop basic skills.
