eTwinning Back to School Seminars 2013

On Saturday 26th of October 2013, the eTwinning National Support Service organised a one day training seminar at the Microsoft Skyparks Centre, Luqa. Teachers received training on the use of the Desktop, TwinSpace and Web 2.0 tools. New eTwinners were helped in the registering process and given a short tour of the Desktop Tools. Afterwards teachers were invited to a training TwinSpace and received training on how to create new activities, blogs, folders etc. on their pages. After a short lunch break, teachers learned about Web 2.0 tools which can help them in their project planning stages:  Wordle, Tagxedo and Mindomo.

Overall, a great seminar, both for the organising eTwinning NSS and also for the particpants. Well done everyone :)
