Start the school year on a good foot – Sign up for a Learning Event!

Are you ready for the new school year? Have a look at the new Learning Events agenda for this autumn, which includes over ten short courses in three different languages (English, Italian and Spanish). They cover a wide range of topics: how to introduce coding or outdoor activities into your classes, tips to increase the quality of your eTwinning projects, etc. Some of the courses are suitable for all eTwinners, while others focus on specific school roles, like ICT administrators or head teachers.

Find the Learning Events full list and learn how to apply here. The new Online Seminars agenda will be published soon too - Don’t forget you can find all the resources here. Welcome back to school!

eTwinning goes Live!

eTwinning is a living community of over 300,000 teachers from Europe and beyond. The eTwinning Desktop, the place where collaboration starts, has been completely redeveloped and will be relaunched during the week of 21 September. It will be renamed “eTwinning Live”, because the new platform will improve the networking aspect and help you keep track of what’s going on in the entire community.

It will also include new tools and features to facilitate collaboration, like a new web conferencing system available for all eTwinners to organise and run their own online events. Any registered teacher will be also able to open and moderate his own eTwinning group. More information will come soon, keep posted!

Creating a project around the poetry and the words where we will work different authors of our countries and will play with the words. We firmly believe that poetry and words can work across technologies, and can reach around the world.
