Many surprises are waiting for you this school year, because eTwinning is going to improve and relaunch some of its main tools and offer new exciting opportunities to all eTwinners. Don’t miss any of them by keeping posted on the eTwinning Portal!

The agendas to the new Continuous Professional Development activities will be published during September. In the meantime, you can have a look at the resources from last year’s online seminars, which are available on the Progress section.

Welcome back to school!

A new TwinSpace for better collaboration

The TwinSpace, the eTwinning’s safe collaborative platform for schools, has been completely redeveloped and it will be relaunched during the week of 22 September. A new design and a whole range of new tools will simplify and enhance the collaboration among teachers and students within the projects.

All new eTwinning projects approved after the launching day will benefit from the new TwinSpace, which will include new communication tools, such as a chat system which allows group and individual conversations. More information will be provided soon on the eTwinning Portal.
