Open eTwinning: Project-Based Learning and the Community for Schools in Europe

Rating: 4/54 users

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.” This famous quote from Xu Kuang captures the power of project-based learning. Project-based learning is known to be a hugely engaging and impactful pedagogical method, but many teachers are unsure how to put it into practice. eTwinning, the community for schools in Europe, provides an excellent framework to get started with project-based learning in cooperation with classrooms across Europe.

Join this course to learn about eTwinning and how it can help you to design a project-based learning experience for your students in cooperation with colleagues across Europe and beyond. During the course, you will learn about the principles of project-based learning and how to start a project in the eTwinning community.

More specifically, participants will:

  • Understand the basic principles of project-based learning

  • Start their Personal Learning Environment (PLE)

  • First draft and then progress in the creation of a quality collaborative project, integrating the contents of the course

  • Reflect on their teaching practice to detect strengths and weaknesses

  • Find cases of good practice that can be an example and inspiration for them

  • Learn the basics of eTwinning

  • Get to know the eTwinning quality criteria for planning a project

  • Get to know tools and applications which enable online collaborative work

  • Integrate resources in the design of a collaborative activity

  • Get to know eTwinning Live and its possibilities as a community and professional development platform for teachers

  • Learn about the TwinSpace and the tools it offers for the development and publication of collaboration projects

  • Share and collaborate through digital technologies, using them creatively, and identifying possible uses in their professional life

Not what I expected. I wanted to do the "Introducing Project-Based Learning in your Classroom" course and since it was not running I was recommended to do this one since it had actually replaced the previous one. I have access to the PBL course materials (they are available) and the eTwinning course has nothing to do with the other one. A bit disapointing.
