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).
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. eTwinning can be used in tandem with the School Education Gateway, which presents European school education policy, news, expert articles, national initiatives and best practices. It also offers collaborative spaces, online and on-site courses and resources for teachers.
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.
Direct funding for projects is not available. However funding is available for participating teachers to attend eTwinning professional development workshops and seminars around Europe. Check our News page regularly for details of these opportunities.
