eTwinning Italy in collaboration with the European unit, organized the thematic conference “Empowering eTwinning Schools: Leading, Learning, Sharing” in Rome at the Trevi fountain conference centre from 14 to 16 May.
The key theme of the conference was the eTwinning school recognition, introduced for the first time during the school year 2017/18 which is awarded to schools implementing competencies-based curricula and project-based teaching, strongly characterized by the use of the Internet and digital technologies with a special focus on safety and eSafety.
The eTwinning School Label was introduced in 2017 to recognize and reward the involvement, commitment, and dedication of not only individual eTwinning teachers, but also teams of teachers and school leaders within the same school. The application process for the label began in December 2017 and closed in March 2018. Overall, 2600 schools applied for the label. We have 6 winning schools with eTwinning school label.
