eTwinning Webinar – Global Education and Interculturality in eTwinning

On the 9th April 2015 I presented an online seminar as part of the eTwinning online seminars organised from time to time by eTwinning, the main action of the European Commission.

The seminar was moderated by Rute Baptista -Pedagogical and Professional Development Officer of the European Commission-  and presented by me Rose-anne Camilleri –eLearning Support teacher (primary).

eTwinning Learning Event on Internet Safety: Starts Today!

The eTwinning Learning Event “Internet Safety and You”, led by Karl Hopwood and sponsored by eTwinning Malta, starts today.  If you have been accepted, you will receive an email with your login and password in your mailbox today, Monday the 23rd of May.  This Learning Event will run until the 3rd of June.

The learning lab will allow teachers to explore the risks and benefits of the internet (including privacy, cyber bullying, sexting, validity and bias) and will look at what children and young people are really doing when they are online (as well as how they actually get online). There will be a range of resources and practical ideas to try in the classroom as well as opportunities to ask questions and collaborate with each other using the online forum. The main purpose of the learning lab is to increase teachers knowledge and understanding of eSafety issues so that they feel empowered to support their pupils in staying safe online. There will also be an opportunity to reflect on some of the difficulties for teachers in protecting their own professional identity online.
