Visibility of eTwinning Projects Group July 2014 Newsletter -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------actions. We all took part in national webinars and local seminars and we constantly shared, discussed, suggested ideas, tips, materials to cope with this new challenging European perspective. When we were called to run local seminars, we could count on the helping hands of our “eTwinning mates” to prepare presentations. In this period we opened shared google drive folders with list of FAQs, documents, suggestions, links. And we went on debating on the new challenges provided by Erasmus+ in the Teachers’ Room “eTwinning e la realtà”. If we look back at our “journey” together, we can point out some good qualities of our team:  we are teachers - from different regions, teaching different subjects in different kinds and levels of school - who work together on several occasions and for specific purposes (webinars, ebooks, presentations, Wikipedia, learning events, articles) on the basis of our common interests;  each of us wishes to share and collaborate with the others; none of us wants to “show off” more than the others, and all our decisions are taken together;  we all feel constantly part of a wider community of teachers and learners and we strive to be part of the eTwinning community but also to be active in other social networks, always acting as eTwinning ambassadors, spreading the word and the values of eTwinning cooperation;  we work together also to show the European projects community that ‘together we can’ and moreover we are convinced that cooperation is the only way to work, to teach and to learn. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thus, we experience what means for us the teamwork added value: making the best of mixed competences and attitudes, enjoying mutual learning and support, feeling less overwhelmed by workload. Together we can make it! 121
