Results of the eTwinning Survey – Your eTwinning Profile

Between March and May 2013, the eTwinning National Support Service conducted a survey amongst all teaching grades in order to raise awareness about teachers’ eTwinning profile, how one becomes inactive (and therefore unsearchable on the eTwinning Desktop) and how this can be reversed. We also asked teachers if they were interested in joining or becoming again active in the action, and what steps the eTwinning NSS could take to facilitate this process.

eTwinning Project of the Month – Write to me, Io ti rispondo

By Mr. Tony Mizzi

St. Ignatius College, Handaq Girls’ Secondary

Participating in this eTwinning project are three schools, one from Italy, the other from the United Kingdom, and us. Due to age and linguistic abilities, the project activities were divided into two subgroups, one for senior secondary schools and the other for lower secondary schools. Thus, the students would work within the group of lower secondary school with our Italian partners. The chat and the blog are free for all students irrespective of their age and abilities to communicate freely.
