Let’s kick off the new school year with eTwinning!

Summer Holidays are over and eTwinning is kicking off the new school year with a wide range of new developments for the community.

eTwinning is happy to officially release the project videos for the three winning projects of the 2017 European eTwinning Prizes; the videos highlight the very best in collaboration between teachers from different countries and the common efforts of their pupils. This year, the three winning projects are “In Darwin’s steps”, “Migrants and Refugees” and “EU Games 2015-2016”.

“eTwinning is important because it allows the kids to travel virtually, it opens borders and classrooms. There is an energy that pushes the kids towards the discovery of others. I would like to continue having projects that are related to real world events, and hopefully make a difference”, said Kristie Segond, one of the teachers involved in the Migrants and Refugees project. To find out more about the stories behind these projects, click here to watch the videos, which will soon be available in all languages on eTwinning’s freshly revamped YouTube channel.

Through these videos, you can follow the story behind each winning project, hear from pupils involved and get inspiration and fresh ideas for your projects. And this is only the beginning… eTwinning will be kicking off the school year with a campaign that will engage both teachers and pupils this autumn on Inclusion during eTwinning weeks, which will start on the 21st of September. eTwinning weeks will explore how eTwinning supports students with fewer opportunities and contributes to mainstreaming inclusion in education. Stay tuned, more information will follow on the eTwinning portal in the coming weeks.
