eTwinning is happy to release a redesign of the public portal. Over the summer, we have worked hard on a new website to better suit the needs of teachers.

The website has been restructured to make it more in-line with the three central tenets of eTwinning:

  • Collaboration: a greater prominence has been given to eTwinning projects
  • Community: discover what happens behind the scenes, get registered and meet your peers
  • Lifelong learning: the new website has a dedicated section on the type of professional development opportunities provided by eTwinning.
