EUROPEAN SCHOOLNET AND Cambridge research stats the impact of eTwinning projects
Increased motivation, as students have an audience for their work. Literacy and communication skills increase as students collaborate with students from other countries.
Professional development opportunities are vast – they can take place online or on 2-3 workshops in a different country. Teachers up-skill, using new tools and learning from their colleagues in over 40 countries across Europe and further afield.
Lots of accreditation opportunities, including a foundation level International School Award as soon as you register an eTwinning project. You can use the platform to find partners interested in starting a funded Erasmus+ project.
