Annual eTwinning Conference 2009 Report

Report by Marlene Gatt

The eTwinning Conference was held in Prague, Czech Republic between 13th and 15th February 2009.

I had worked on an eTwinning Project during the previous year, which venture had been extremely rewarding both for my students and for myself. “eTwinning is a framework for schools to collaborate over the Internet with other partner schools from around Europe. Using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) two or more schools from two or more European countries can work in partnership on a project of their choosing.

Workshop 1: Creativity and Innovation

This workshop was mostly interactive and so we had the opportunity to explore several facets of creativity through hands-on tasks.

Firstly we listened to relaxing music and then we were invited to write down what we had imagined while listening to this particular music. Surprisingly enough one of my colleagues and I imagined the same thing and this made me realise that being creative doesn’t necessarily mean to be original or unique in whatever you do. In fact I started thinking of my students’ work and how sometimes I tend to reward only those students who come up with original ideas. This realisation made me feel rather uncomfortable but I made it a point to start appreciating each and every student’s ideas more. Another aspect of the workshop which I had never reflected on was that one needs to be relaxed to be creative.
