Groups are virtual spaces where eTwinning users can meet and discuss specific subjects, materials and other areas of interest. Since the launch of eTwinning Live in September 2015, any teacher registered in the eTwinning platform can open and moderate their own group (one or more).
The eTwinning National Support Service offers all etwinners and non etwinners their email address at email@example.com to resolve any questions or technical or teaching problems. But for all etwinners who are working on a project, the NSS provides even better support:
Just as Virgil helped Dante to find the path to Paradise in the Divine Comedy, the Virgilio Group will help you find your way in the eTwinning world. Do you fancy starting this trip?
A few months ago, coinciding with the launch of eTwinning Live, three Italian ambassadors created a group (in English) with the aim of guiding teachers in the eTwinning world: the Virgilio Group (Grupo Virgilio). In this group, any eTwinner (either a new or experienced member) can ask questions, get answers and share all kinds of information and content about the eTwinning world.
Once you’ve joined the group, you have the choice of filling out a questionnaire to know what eTwinning level you’re at: First step – Lost in the wood; Second step – Climbing up; Third step – Up to heaven. Each level has its own page, and each of these pages has different content (activities, games, forums, tutorials …) according to the corresponding level. In addition, this group also has a page dedicated to eTwinning Live, with tutorials and small activities. Another highlight is the specific forum for finding partners for our projects.
With more than 2,000 members, the Virgilio Group is currently one of the largest in eTwinning. From the NSS, we encourage you to join, regardless of whether you’re new to eTwinning or not, and to benefit from all the advantages this group can offer you.
