Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union



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 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.

The COVID-19 crisis continues and it’s vital that we continue to limit social contact and practice good hygiene. Most of all we can come together by staying apart – at least six feet apart when walking, shopping, or spending time outdoors.

These posters, booklets and social media icons are helpful reminders to protect the health and safety of everyone in our community. Please share them online as much as you can!
