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.

The seventh question we asked was ‘How often do you eat meat?’ We can see from these results that a lot of students eat meat very frequently and a very small number of people are Vegetarian or Vegan. #ClimateAction #Europe @kheustudies @Leargas_etwinn #SDG #Carbon #meat #Vegan Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland

The first question we asked was ‘Have you heard of the Sustainable Development Goals?’ As you can see, just under 73% of people had heard of the #SDGs. It's so important that we educate people on these Goals. #ClimateAction #Europe @kheustudies @Leargas_etwinn #GlobalGoals #SDG Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
