For the last four years my classes have been participating in eTwinning projects and also been awarded the Quality Labels.
You must be asking – What’s eTwinning?
eTwinning is a framework for schools to collaborate on the Internet with partner schools in other European countries. The project aims to encourage European schools to collaborate using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
At the click of a mouse, pupils and teachers can work with their counterparts in other countries and learn about any subject or topic with and from each other.
The main aim behind these kind of projects is to create very rich and authentic learning situations for the children. They contribute in an increase to the students’ motivation, improves their communication and team-work skills and help them to develop cultural awareness and tolerance. We believe that there are more opportunities for the children to learn than just within the classroom.
We aim to create a well-organised stimulating and caring environment that will enable our children to grow, learn and develop physically, psychologically and academically, thus helping them acquire a holistic education.
