The eTwinning Stand was also open and NSS members held activities for both students and teachers on a variety of iPad apps, together with information sessions for teachers interested in registering or joining eTwinning. eTwinnining teachers who had called for assistance at the eTwinning office during the week were also encouraged to visit the eTwinning stand at the weekend so that the eTwinning Support Staff would be able to help them out.
