Launch of new eTwinning Portal 2016

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.

Take a look at this short video to learn more about eTwinning and the benefits offered for schools, teachers, and students alike. Contact the National Support Service on 25982177/25982150/25982805 or etwinning@ilearn.edu.mt for more info.


New eTwinning Platform: Weekend Updates

The eTwinning National Support Service would like to advise all eTwinners that the eTwinning Portal is currently undergoing maintenance and all users, their data and projects are being migrated to the new Platform.  Therefore the portal (http://www.etwinning.net) may appear to be down at the moment.  Please do not worry; normal service will be resumed by next Monday :)

eTwinning evening course 2009

Last week marked the end of the eTwinning evening course 2009. During the last class session on the 23rd March, a virtual closure meeting was organized through FlashMeeting for the 1st April 2009.

FlashMeeting is a free online conferencing application, which allows a group of people to meet from anywhere in the world through an internet connection. The meeting is pre-booked by one of the users and a link, containing a unique password for the meeting, is then passed on to all participants.  For Maltese teachers, to book a FlashMeeting event, send an email to Rose Anne Xerri on roseanne.xerri@gov.mt. It is important to give the following information to book the meeting: school, school telephone number, teacher’s name, date of conference, time and duration of the conference, a title for the conference and the number of participants for the conference.

How to use the new eTwinning Portal

The new eTwinning Portal was launched at the beginning of October 2008.

The new Portal

It has various new features and others that have also changed a bit, especially in its appearance. These changes include more web 2.0 tools.  Apart from offering more tools to the registered eTwinner, the new portal also offers the possibility for non-registered viewers to get to know more about eTwinning and what it is about before registering. Here are some notes which you can find handy to use this portal.
