· COURSE INFORMATION:
This course will focus on the beneficial usage of the eTwinning platform in international school projects, with special focus on Key Action 1 + 2 Erasmus + Projects. It will be carried out in practical lessons with internationally mixed groups, aiming to end up with a project group and a project outline that can be easily turned into an Erasmus KA1 or 2 application.

This workshop is aimed at teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff. Non-native English trainers expecting participants to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.

The importance of eTwinning in international projects has been increasing intensely within the last years. The European National Agencies grant more points to your Erasmus KA1 or 2 application when you are planning to use eTwinning within the project or even better - starting from an already existing project. However, the eTwinning platform is manifold and not always self-explanatory.

· METHODOLOGY:
The course is based on practical lessons and presentations of examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. It will have short lectures to ensure full comprehension but most of the time we will be working actively learning-by-doing on the eTwinning platform and our own project twinspace. Every day participants will get short and fun assignments related to their needs and goals for the course.

Every day participants will become more and more accustomed to working in etwinning, will become more fluent in creating pages, project outlines and will come up with own ideas that can be directly used for their own individual projects at home.

Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize networking, cultural, sport and historical activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practice and establish professional cooperation and links. In these activities will take part not only participants of the course but also other participants from different courses running at the same time at the same venue. The expected training activity has been structured so that the participants can transfer know-how and develop needed skills to create and manage a project with real success.

· MAIN OBJECTIVES:
In this course you will:
- find partners for your Erasmus KA1 or 2 project (also JOB SHADOWINGS)
- learn about professional development possibilities with etwinning
- learn how to use eTwinning for documentation, collaboration and communication between project partners
- learn how to work in the “Twinspace”, your own project-website within eTwinning
- creating new pages
- embedding content
- uploading material
- adding students
- setting up online meetings with Adobe Connect

By the end of the course, participants should have a proposal ready for an international project including the usage of etwinning or will have a fixed outline on how to use eTwinning beneficially in the already existing project. At the end of the course, the company will provide the participants with an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.
