Milles et une pistes… y dos detectives (1001 clues and two detectives) is an award–winning project; it won a 2016 eTwinning National Prize for the 12-15 years old age category. This project is integrated in the Foreign Language subject area and it involved students of ages between 13-14 years old; it was the perfect tool for both teachers and students to get to know each other, to collaborate, and carry out an exchange visit at the end of the school year. The working methodology is original and it constantly fostered student collaboration, involvement and creativity; it boasts careful planning, clear task and role allocation, and the use of a wide range of adequate digital tools for the students’ age. The project methodology is active, the activities foster creativity and are aimed at knowing the partners and constantly interacting with them; all of this makes the students the true project protagonists. Juana Hermoso, who is the project coordinator in the IES Ítaca school, describes the experience of implementing this experience in her school.
Here are some examples of good practices for Pre-primary and Primary education for each of the six existing evaluation criteria used for awarding National Quality Labels to eTwinning projects.
‘I take the floor’ is an eTwinning project between schools in France, Italy, England, Turkey and Spain. It is mainly focussed on the language proficiency of participating pupils, using Spanish as the working language. The activities carried out in collaboration with partner schools show more than satisfactory results that have increased pupil motivation, encouraged work on key competencies and teamwork in international groups. In addition we should underline the good diffusion of the project through the school website and through social networks like Facebook and Twitter. The teacher Juan Fco. Peñas Viso, coordinator at the school of CPEIP San Babil (Navarra) describes the experience and how important it is to build a team and make use of eTwinning projects. Continuar leyendo

The project, carried out at the Cuatro Caminos secondary school (Extremadura) with partners from Italy, Poland, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Ukraine, deals with the exchange of socio-cultural aspects, mostly encouraging the language proficiency of pupils. We should highlight the great interest and motivation of students. The project has led to the creation of very valuable material, reused by other teachers in future projects. Continuar leyendo
The Spanish National Support Service has offered, among their teacher training activities, the MOOC “Open eTwinning”. The experience is being quite satisfactory; almost 1500 teachers from different countries are interacting and exchanging ideas.
