If you want to see our videos, the tutorials to the web tools some schools used for publishing their stories, or our interviews, you can check our TwinSpace page called “Videos – tutorials and students’ videos”, available here: http://bit.ly/1fyavXa. This was the story of our project, which put a new spin on learning a foreign language through writing stories, all thanks to eTwinning, which for us has come to be a way of life. Speaking of which, some of the students even made up stories about how eTwinning came to be. You can check them out by accessing these links: http://bit.ly/1fyeO4O, http://bit.ly/1D0B6qQ or scanning the two QR codes below: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Show, share, spread: 3 keywords for a successful eTwinning project by Veronique Sarrere On Friday June the 12th 2015, Jean Giono’s students of the European section really wanted to share the results of the two-year Comenius/eTwinning project which is entitled VIOLA (Values In Our Lives Always) with their parents first but also with the local authorities among them the Mayor of le Beausset and his collaborator as well as the teachers who were involved in the project. So, they invited all of them to an open evening at J Giono Secondary School in le Beausset.

On stage, in turn, they started with presenting videos that showed pictures of the different countries they were hosted in such as Austria, Denmark, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic and they added France since they also hosted partners last May.
