eTwinning and the European Competition
For four years now, the European Competition has cooperated with Europe’s largest online platform for school exchanges, eTwinning. eTwinning offers school classes the opportunity to work together with school classes in other countries on assignments set by the European Competition, and thereby the chance of winning valuable cash prizes of up to 1,000 euros.
Working with eTwinning is not only creative and diverse, but it also promotes competences in areas like new media, foreign languages and intercultural learning. Cooperation between school classes takes place in a password-protected virtual classroom, called TwinSpace. Here, many innovate tools can be used such as blogs, wikis, video conferencing, virtual noticeboards and much more.
To enter the competition though, it will be necessary to engage in an eTwinning partnership of maximal 5 partners and with at least one German school. Please choose one of the tasks related to the age group of your pupils. You will find the tasks also in English, Spanish, French, Turkish, Italian and Polish.
Should you have any further questions or are you unsure how online work can be integrated into daily school life? eTwinning staff and the team of the European Competition are happy to help. We wish you lots of fun and success in your international project work!
