Open eTwinning: Project-Based Learning and the Community for Schools in Europe

School Education Gateway - Teacher Academy via Independent


Join this course to learn about eTwinning and how it can help you design a project-based learning experience for your students in cooperation with colleagues across Europe and beyond. During the course, you will learn about the principles of project-based learning and how to start a project in the eTwinning community.

Throughout the activities, we will look at the entire life cycle of a project, starting with the initial idea, including finding a partner and negotiations to design a common project, and ending with the implementation and evaluation of the project. We will include principles of project work and collaboration, as well as the educational use of various ICT tools that facilitate project work. We will also look at the social aspect of collaborative projects, showing eTwinning not only as a platform in which to implement educational projects, but also as a meeting place between colleagues, an environment where we can share ideas and participate in various professional development activities.

This course is based on the content of the Open eTwinning course previously created by the National Support Service in Spain for eTwinning, from the Spanish Ministry of Education. It was partly adapted to incorporate a more European perspective and resources. The team behind the original course supported the redesign of the course for the Teacher Academy.
