Visibility of eTwinning Projects Group July 2015 Newsletter -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Last but not least a quick word about the “Don’t bully, act kindly, live happily” project. Five partners from previous year’s “Europe’s Sweet Tooth” teamed up again for a project to fight bullying. The final product was a collection of stories collaboratively created by five countries – France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey - and published as an e-book. Each team started a story, which got a good and a bad ending, written by two partners. The other teams contributed illustrations and titles. What started as the German story got a happy ending by the Spanish team, a sad ending by the Turkish team; the illustrations were added by the French team and the titles created by the Italian team. Here you can read our e-book http://goo.gl/KAB7N2 and listen to the German story https://goo.gl/2NWCIk. Apart from being presented on social media, this project got a different kind of recognition: the owner of a local bookshop printed the book, displayed it in her shop and finally gave it as a present to the students. The local press covered this activity http://goo.gl/U7mBdU and explained the advantages of eTwinning in detail. Special thanks to my students, who have been in eTwinning projects for three years now, and my fantastic project partners, who have made collaboration a great experience again. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With eTwinning in the USA by Arjana
