eTwinning Annual Conference completed with success / New Publication Released

Over 500 eTwinning teachers from across Europe met in Athens for the eTwinning Annual Conference, from 26 to 29 October. Emma Mulqueeny, one of the most influential women in technology and founder of Rewired State and Young Rewired State, addressed the keynote speech inaugurating the annual conference focused on the theme ‘Digital Citizenship’.

During the three day event, the Prize Giving Ceremony took place while 40 workshops and more than 30 different experienced trainers explored ways of raising the capabilities of today’s schools to be prepared for the challenges of the fully digital society of tomorrow.

The eTwinning Annual Conference saw the launch of eTwinning's new publication, 'Growing Digital Citizens: developing active citizenship through eTwinning'. Digital citizens belong to the digital society. They use technology to actively engage in and with society. Digital citizenship empowers people to reap the benefits of digital technology in a safe and effective way. The book explores the three main pillars when defining digital citizenship: belonging, engagement, and protection.
