Visibility of eTwinning Projects Group July 2014 Newsletter -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------And coming to my students, instead of studying lots of grammar books, writing texts and doing exercises, they had the opportunity to learn by finding and sharing information, using ICT tools, experimenting and comparing, and most importantly in direct collaboration with their peers in other countries. I am sure eTwinning projects increased their motivation and their creativity, too. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There is no doubt that our students’ learning contexts are changing in our schools nowadays and that technology is playing an important part in the types of teaching and learning practices and pedagogies. I think all teachers who care about their personal and professional development should get involved in eTwinning! Because eTwinning is a unique portal for the whole educational community, and all European teachers and students should experience it. The best advantage of eTwinning projects is that you only need a computer and Internet connection to join it. You can start a virtual travel around Europe whenever you want and you can find out about different cultures easily thanks to eTwinning. I am confident that, once you join it, you will keep it forever just like me and thousands other addicted eTwinning teachers all over Europe. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 124
