eTwinning provides safe online tools and supports for teachers, students and schools. These can be used to great effect in Irish schools implementing the Digital Strategy for Schools. In this post, find out about collaborative tools, professional development opportunities and peer-to-peer learning and training: all available online and at events throughout Europe.
Irish schools can develop their international outlook and exchange teaching practices by partnering with schools across Europe in an Erasmus+ School Exchange Partnership. Primary teacher Karen Naughton from Galway explains how her school’s project has helped pupils learn about other customs, culture, music and traditions while teachers learned new insights and methods.
What I liked about this was the safety of the eTwinning platform: we can collaborate online with a class in another country with all the child protection concerns covered! There is lots of support from the eTwinning team who are ready to help when you need it. Before we knew it, we had our projects written up and submitted. I’m looking forward to the year ahead and seeing how our project turns out.
