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.
What a great group of teachers and principals this evening in @ClareEdCentre for their STEAMing project.

Wishing you every success in your journey together. @Leargas_etwinn pic.twitter.com/9H8nnMQ7jS— Donal O Reilly 🇮🇪 🇪🇺 (@DpDonal) November 11, 2019

What can I do if images of my child are shared online? There are supports available to your child, and to you as a parent. Elaine Byrnes, Doctoral Researcher-Psychology, NUI Galway offers advice on what to to do if intimate images of your child are shared online. @ebyrnesNUIG Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
@JasonKeelan @tvwalsh @Leargas @Leargas_etwinn @edcentretralee @ClareEdCentre @IPPN_Education @SineadPigott @cork_cesc @WCEC1 Oversubscribed on this one Jason but happy to get you started on eTwinning sometime if you want. Some great eTwinning ambassadors up your way that could set you up. Students love it and teachers find it refreshing to widen their professional network. Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
Thank you to everyone who responded to my tweet. Still have a Spanish partner for an eTwinning project for post primary (13/14 yr olds). 'How Technology has Changed Our Lives' though Spanish & English. Great way to practice written, oral & aural language skills. @Leargas_etwinn twitter.com/DpDonal/status… Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
I have primary teachers in Europe looking for Irish partners for eTwinning projects and job shadowing in the areas of Spanish, STEM and Wellbeing. Anyone interested? @Leargas @Leargas_etwinn @edcentretralee @ClareEdCentre @IPPN_Education @SineadPigott @cork_cesc @WCEC1 Retweeted by eTwinning Ireland
