eTwinning celebrates its 10th Anniversary

In 2015, eTwinning will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a full programme of activities which will be organised all across Europe during the entire year. This includes a special logo and hymn, an “eTwinning Day” that will take place in all eTwinning countries simultaneously, and much more! More information will be provided soon – get ready to celebrate eTwinning’s birthday in your school!

eTwinning was launched in January 2005 as an initiative of the European Commission to encourage all the schools in Europe to form a collaborative partnership using different types of ICT. After 10 years, eTwinning has grown steadily to become the biggest community for schools in Europe, with over 280,000 teachers and 130,000 schools registered.
