We received this prize for the poster: My eTwinning Life by Mihaela Gurita I work in a small kindergarten with children from 3 to 7 years old. I am an eTwining user, registered since 2008. I find many colleagues, from many countries, so I like this platform for teachers. Many projects, such as “Christmas spirit brought us together”, “Let's find out more about our friends!!!” or ”Child games and culture” made me keep in touch with this platform, eTwinning. Last year in mid-April they launched the 2013 eTwinning Spring Campaign. It turned out to be one of the most successful ever. The goal of the campaign was to extend the reach of eTwinning within schools where teachers are already involved. It was a competition to design a poster to promote the event or eTwinning (in case it is not possible to run a local event). Everyone with an eTwinning account can vote on a poster. The top three posters at the end of the competition won a HD pocket camcorder. The information is here: That same year Generations@school invited teachers to organize an activity that was to bring pupils together with seniors from their communities to explore how dialogue between generations can contribute to a better understanding of each other. I participated with the little children. Our project was “Without old people, it’s not a really past, without children it is not a really future!”. 115
