Léargas appreciates the ambition to support learning for all, within the EU and beyond, that was set out in the first three-year strategy for the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science. We look forward to working with the Department towards this objective.
We are delighted to announce that our Connecting Schools across Europe Summer School for primary and secondary teachers is running in July 2020. This DES approved blended course will take place online, and Léargas will cover the costs this year.
Connecting Schools across Europe will introduce teachers to the eTwinning programme, guiding them as they explore, communicate, and collaborate on the online platform. It will highlight the potential for growth and professional development under eTwinning, and also introduce the benefits of Erasmus+.
Join us on 03 December for the annual Léargas Forum at Dublin Castle Conference Centre. We have an exciting day planned with a keynote address from Hazel Chu, a performance from Experience Japan Taiko Team and a lively panel discussion about the role of educational exchange and cooperation programmes in building a more inclusive Europe.
We are currently recruiting for the Irish eTwinning Ambassadors Network 2019-20. eTwinning Ambassadors are experienced, enthusiastic teachers who share their passion for eTwinning with the wider teaching community. They share their experience with other schools, offer training to teachers, and support those new to eTwinning both online and in person.
