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 European Language Label and eTwinning Awards take place 10 October in Croke Park, Dublin. Join us for a day of celebration with workshops that engage with language teaching and learning through drama and ICT. To find out more and register visit:… Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland

Random word of the day: pretzels take their name, via German, from the Latin ‘brachitellum’, ‘little arm’. They are said to have been invented by European monks to represent, in their shape, arms folded in prayer. Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
