eTwinning Project of the Month: My Number 1

By Mr. Mario Xerri,

Gozo College, Victoria Girls’ Secondary

We do choices continuously. This eTwinning project offered participants from Malta, Italy and Germany the opportunity to share their number one preference in various aspects relevant to their lives. Through the ‘Number 1’ theme and through a cross curricular, student centred approach, the project enabled participants to get in touch with different European cultures, traditions, lifestyles as well as to virtually encounter famous people and explore what they had to say and in some cases their notorious inventions. Participants also got to know about each others prefered books, actors, singers and favourite sports. All this was achieved through various innovative ICT tools. This project placed second in the national etwinning Awards competition 212.
