The Community for Schools in Europe
eTwinning is a free online platform linking a community of more than 500,000 teachers across Europe. It supports primary and post primary schools to find partners and work on joint projects in any curricular area, using Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Learn how five Irish schools use eTwinning in our brochure.
On the dedicated website www.etwinning.net you can create a profile, search for partners, browse ongoing and completed projects, and develop your own project ideas. Once you have found a partner and agreed a project plan, you can register your project and access a specially created ‘Twinspace’. This is a private and secure online workspace that you and your partner(s) administer; students can be invited to participate as members.
Have a look at Gaelscoil de hÍde in Roscommon chatting to their project partners in Spain.
eTwinning is funded by the European Union and administered in participating countries by a National Support Service (NSS). Léargas is the National Support Service for eTwinning in Ireland.

Bilingualism in primary education and the languages of the immigrant communities have without doubt contributed to the 75% result for Ireland. Let's celebrate these strengths and use them to improve the learning of foreign languages, because Ireland can do better. twitter.com/EUErasmusPlus/… Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland

I think that there is a great opportunity here for schools to attend @FEILTE , a team representing P, DP, AP's and teachers. Gives space outside of the classroom, builds relationships, CPD, professional dialogue & maybe a bit of fun thrown in @NAPD_IE @IPPN_Education @ETBIreland twitter.com/FEILTE/status/… Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
