This was the first online PFF to be organised by the Maltese NSS and had quite encouraging and interesting results. The ideas discussed during the webinar were uploaded on the following Tricider decision-making online tool. You may view, scroll down, and vote for the best project idea listed.

eTwinning Partner Finding: Italian Teacher Looking for Maltese Partner School

Ms. Francesca Luppino, from Messina, Sicily, is interested in starting a project on Mediterranean Cities and would also like to include Malta as an area of study.  For this reason, she is looking for a Maltese teacher of Italian language to exchange ideas and information and to start an eTwinning Project together.  The language of communication will be Italian, so this project would be a good way to practice Italian as a second language and also to learn about Italian culture, and in the process, also a bit more about our own.  If you would like to contact Ms. Luppino you may get in touch with her on the eTwinning Desktop or send her an email on francesca.luppino@alice.it.

European Chain Reaction: eTwinning Project Looking for Maltese Partners

The European Chain Reaction 2012 is a science/art eTwinning project for primary schools wishing to create, film and upload a “Rube-Goldberg/Robert Storm Petersen-like” chain reaction. This project is both a competition and a European eTwinning collaboration.  The school which uploads the most astonishing, creative chain reaction not only wins a trophy, but also wins tons of fame :)  In the end all videos will be merged into one big cross border European Chain Reaction.

This project is founded by Michael Purves and Dave Schrauwen, and their aim is to find a partner from each country participating in eTwinning.  For more information visit this year’s blog:  http://www.ecr2012.blogspot.com/.  You can find information regarding the rules of the eTwinning Project / Competition, the timeline and work plan. Only 1 school from each country is allowed to participate, and Dave and Micahel are eager to add a Maltese teacher to their group!

Geometry and Art eTwinning Project Partner needed

Enrica Maragliano is an Italian teacher of Maths and Physics at the Liceo Classico C. Colombo in Genova. Her 15 – 16 year old students are most often engaged in Humanities and Classical Languages projects but she would like to encourage them to love Sciences and Maths through an eTwinning project about Geometry and Art. Her students can work both in English and Italian languages.

The idea of the project would be to make the students realize that Geometry is everywhere around them. The students would have to identify monuments or buildings which where they can see geometrical shapes in them, photograph them, upload them in Geogebra and identify the Geometrical shapes there. Morever they would add up some information about the monument they chose and explain their choice in writing or in the production of a short video. The art teacher in the college is also enthusiastic to help in this project too.

Enrica Maragliano says:

I’d like to work with people from Malta because we are close and it’s interesting to compare the differences and similarities between our cultures. Moreover both people from Malta and from Genova were seamen and they had contacts in the ancient times. So we could discover some particular symbols in common between the two places.

If you are interested in joining Enrica Maragliano, you can look her up on the eTwinning Desktop in the FIND ETWINNERS section. You can also contact the National Support Service for more help at etwinning@schoolnet.gov.mt or on 25982150.
