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.
Looking forward to exploring all things blended learning on Monday. We’ll be looking at some key models, planning considerations & practical ways to engage in blended learning in the primary & post-primary classroom. #edchatie @Leargas_etwinn @eu_schoolnet @PDSTie twitter.com/pdst_techined/… Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland

See the amazing art of our international students as part of an eTwinning project “International Mother Language Day 2021”. Students from schools in 9 countries are collaborating on ways of celebrating language diversity & cultural heritage. @leargas_etwinn #EDLComp20 Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
Presentation is ready to go! Really looking forward to virtually meeting the language PME students this week from @mlal_ul and @SchoolOfEd_UL to chat with them about #eTwinning and its benefits. Something useful to think about using during school placement! #edchatie #edshareie Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
The deadline for entering #EDLComp20 was extended to 14 February. If you are an Irish-based teacher, you still have some time to create an eTwinning language and culture awareness project and be in with a chance win three Chromebooks for your class!
