Between formal and informal education a pioneering experience in FVG

  1. 1. The idea is to tell to the colleagues about the mini-site http://etwinningformazioneneoassunti.jimdo.com/ that I created as a workshop path for newly hired teachers in my region. The focus will be on objectives, contents, methods, strengths and weaknesses. The local mini-experience in our region, with its potential and limits actually will be considered as a pretext to imagine and reflect on the possible integration of eTwinning in the compulsory initial training in Europe, so that the program becomes definitively part of it. To integrate eTwinning in the formal training path of all teachers would have a huge impact on the spread of the program.
