The facilitator of this activity was Zuzana Kurillová. partners, on the contrary, but this workshop drew my attention to something I had not thought of that it might not always be so. That is why it is one of my strongest impressions of the seminar and something I'll dedicate greater attention to in the future. A person who made a very strong impression on me was a charismatic Bart Verswijvel from Belgium National Support Services with his workshop "How do you do?". I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to meet him personally as he was engaged in some parts of courses I have attended within the European Schoolnet Academy. On the third day some examples of good practice of the best eTwinning projects were shown. They were presented by Kornélia Lohyňa from Slovakia, Maria Kurz from Austria and Jasna Mulalič and Marina Svečko from Slovenia. I also find as very significant the explanations obtained in connection KA1 and KA2 projects Erasmus+ mobility of students and teachers illustrated by examples from the personal experience of participants from Austria. After that workshop participants got a task designing eTwinning projects in teams of five teachers. Then came the presentation of ideas, comments and suggestions. Facilitator of this activity was Gabriela Podolanová from National Support Services Slovakia. The seminar was very successful and all the objectives of the seminar were completely fulfilled. For me it was a very useful experience, especially the workshop on conflict and differences in order to assist in the selection of partners on projects and resolve problems in co-operation led by Lenka Práznovská, a clinical psychologist. In current practice, I had no bad experiences with the project The conclusion from the last workshop – "The integration of eTwinning projects into the curriculum" and presented examples of good practice – for me is of the most importance and represents the official confirmation that I have correctly understood the essence of eTwinning and that I am on the right way. This method of implementation has proved to be the most effective way of realization of the eTwinning project activities that encouraged me to initiate new projects consistent with the curriculum of my subject. I decided on several projects for the next school year with colleagues from Slovenia. We proposed themes and activities and already jointly prepared proposals which will start from October 2015. $)
