image Ten years have passed since the eTwinning action was first launched, and this report marks the occasion by taking stock of the programme’s key achievements and areas in need of further development, through an analysis of a large-scale survey of eTwinning teachers launched at the end of 2014.

The survey was designed to investigate how the programme is affecting participating teachers’ professional practice and how might it improve the professional development services it offers. Thanks to the 6,000 eTwinners who voluntarily answered the survey, the current report provides grounded evidence on which eTwinning can develop its services to the educational communities of Europe.
A large majority of respondents believe that the top skill most impacted by eTwinning is their ability to teach cross curricular skills (such as team work, creativity, problem-solving, and decision taking), and that this is the practice they implement the most, now more than before, as a direct result of their involvement in the programme.
The 2015 eTwinning report is available in 6 languages. You can find the translations on the eTwinning portal.
