How eTwinning can contribute to teacher Professional Development and formal accreditation

Cathy Francis (Scotland UK) and Sandra Underwood (England UK) Language: English – Room Berlin-Paris

In this workshop Cathy and Sandra will be looking at how eTwinning and the teachers’ involvement in eTwinning as ambassadors in the UK has contributed to their professional development. Through formal accreditation in Cathy’s case as a Chartered Teacher in Scotland and the impact that has had on teaching and learning in her school. In Sandra’s case it will be the opportunities afforded by delivering peer training on eTwinning and Comenius and the impact that has had on her professional skills.

  1. I am very interested in this workshop. I can say that eTwinning has changed completely my professional life. Since I started this adventure I have been learning so much. Back from Berlin I would like to meet my colleagues and tell them what I learnt but I already know that it will be an informal and quick meeting. How can eTwinning become one of the priorities in a school?

  2. I too am very interested in this workshop as I have been involved in talking to other teachers about my work in eTwinning but it is as yet, not a major priority within the school.

  3. I’m doing European projects for almost 4 years now and it really changed my professional life a lot. I visited countries, I practiced my English, I learned a lot of coordination skills, I learned to convince people, I rescued things, I met a lot of new people, … Do I have to go on?
    eTwinning opened my eyes and gave me a view on the world. It also gave me the motivation and energy to go on with my job.
