How to get started
To learn more about eTwinning, just browse through the Portal:
- Check out eTwinning projects and other eTwinning colleagues on the eTwinning map. Your school might already be registered! If you are interested in setting up a collaborative project, check the Kits and Modules sections: you will find ideas and directions.
- In order to get in touch with other eTwinners, exchange ideas and plan future collaborative activities, you need to register and create your very own eTwinning profile.
More reasons to join
- Free access! You or your school do not have to pay anything to be a member. eTwinning is supported by the European Union and is offered as a free service for all school staff. Furthermore, in eTwinning there is no bureaucracy. You only have to submit some information about you and your school and that is all you need to start.
- Sense of community. When you join eTwinning, you are part of a community of thousands of colleagues just like you. They all share your interest for a better, dynamic, borderless education and your enthusiasm for European collaboration.
- A safe environment. Every single eTwinner must be connected to a school. This is certified at country level by the National Support Services. Members of eTwinning must comply with a code of conduct: no SPAM and maximum flexibility. No advertisement, no commercials, no contact from non-educational professionals are guaranteed.
- Recognition for your work. What you do in eTwinning is recognised at national and European level. Good projects can get Quality Labels or win a European Prize. But, most importantly, your European colleagues will see your worth as a creative and innovative teacher.
- Happy pupils. eTwinning projects invariably show that pupils love to connect with peers in other countries, no matter how easy or complex their project is.
