The eTwinning Day: a big success!

With over 3 million impressions and more than 3,000 messages shared on Twitter and Instagram, the #eTwinningDay was a huge success! Celebrated in conjunction with the eTwinning Prize ceremony on 7 May 2015, schools from all over Europe celebrated the 10th anniversary of eTwinning by creating human logos, baking cakes, dancing, etc. You can find a selection of the videos and pictures shared on 7 May on the 10th Anniversary mini-website, our Flickr, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Thank you, eTwinners, for joining the very first eTwinning Day!

Did you know that the eTwinning Groups have been relaunched? In a brand new platform, we have opened a set of new eTwinning “Featured Groups” on topics like languages teaching, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability in education, STEM or Inclusive teaching.

eTwinning Groups are private platforms for eTwinners to discuss and work together on a specific theme. They are run by a trained moderator who propose different CPD activities and facilitates participation. To browse and join them, just log in to your eTwinning Desktop, go to the “Groups” tab and click the “Join” button.
