eTwinning Desktop and TwinSpace Seminar: An Overiew

On Saturday 27th of October 2012, the eTwinning National Support Service organised a Desktop and TwinSpace Training Seminar for teachers who wished to learn more about eTwinning in general, and also for teachers currently running projects sporting the new TwinSpace to learn more about this newly revamped tool.  A total number of twenty nine teachers had applied for one or both sessions. Some of the teachers who were supposed to attend only the first part enjoyed themselves so much that they opted to stay for the TwinSpace session as well.  New teachers have registered for eTwinning during the Desktop Session, whilst teachers attending the TwinSpace session were invited onto a Training TwinSpace.  The Seminar was run by Amanda Debattista and Jacqueline Frendo from the eTwinning National Support Service.

As part of the Back to School Campaing, the eTwinning National Support Service is also organising a seminar specifically for members of the Senior Management Team in Schools. Heads, Assistant Heads of School, College Principals and Education Officers are invited to attend. More information about this seminar can be found here.
