eTwinning PDW Helsinki: Digital Media

helsinki004As part of the eTwinning initiatives, regular professional development workshops (PDW) are organised for teachers and other interested parties. In November, a PDW on digital media has been organised in Helsinki for secondary teachers.

An important aspect that has been highlighted in this session was that the scope of eTwinning is not just to provide an online space for projects between European classes but also to serve as a platform through which teachers with similar interests may meet and share experiences and expertise.

• Digital Media
• Digitial Games
• Digital resources
