LET’S CELEBRATE TOGETHER… 10th eTwinning birthday


As an Italian eTwinning Ambassador , I had the opportunity to organise  eTwinning 10th Anniversary celebrations   at my school “I.I.S. don L.Milani” in Gragnano, during the Festival of Europe last 9th May.

I started the preparation  inviting some schools of my district to join the meeting in order  to share their experience in eTwinning and  to provide real examples to teachers, beginners in eTwinning,  about how to involve their students in  motivating projects to develop the European   competences needed in the 21st century.

To tell my experience as a member of the eTwinning Community  since 2007, I could rely on a large number of students  who had been working  in different projects during  their school years-  some of them awarded with National  Prizes  and  European Quality Labels- and most of all I was able to get in touch with the  students who participated in my  first eTwinning project in 2008/2009.

In the meanwhile I started  planning  the different activities to be held at school: 2nd class students’ Human Logo and a wishing video; 5th class students’ flag parade; balloons and Chinese lanterns launching and the final “AperiTwinning” with Italian homemade specialties cooked by the students themselves.

Among the schools, I really appreciated the presence of Mrs Gamen, teacher at IIS “A. Tilgher” in  Ercolano – Naples, one of the first to  join eTwinning in 2005, together with her Belgian partners and  their students





and the presence of some  pupils and teachers  of the local Elementary School “G. Ungaretti”, who had the possibility- thanks to this celebration-  to be introduced in the eTwinning community




With a European mood of collaboration, “old” and “new” members of the  eTwinning family jointly wished:”Happy birthday, eTwinning, and many more!”
