Monitoring eTwinning Practice – A pilot project guiding teachers’ competence development
21/12/2016 - Caroline Kearney
As part of eTwinning’s pedagogical monitoring programme, eTwinning developed the Monitoring eTwinning Practice (MeTP) pilot activity. The MeTP Maturity Model on which the pilot activity was based, was developed to provide a tool to assist in tracking the impact of eTwinning projects on teachers’ practice and competence development in two areas, pedagogical competence and digital competence, as reported by eTwinners.The pilot involved a group of mostly first-time eTwinners, 35 teachers from 19 countries, and was implemented over a period of 8 months (December 2014 – July 2015). The results presented in the 2016 eTwinning report illustrate that by implementing eTwinning projects, aided by the reflection tools and processes of the MeTP model, all participating teachers were able to make progress and track their competence development. This positive result confirms the usefulness of the model and the interest to deploy it again in some format in the future.
