Are you planning a new eTwinning project? Did you know you can involve also partners from eTwinning Plus countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Tunisia, Ukraine)? Have a look here at some examples of inventive projects you can come up with!
My alien friend
My “alien friend” is my foreign friend, my distant friend, with whom I try to communicate to create my own alphabet and to share something of myself. The project focused on students working to reinforce their identity through education for diversity. At the same time, project participants aimed to develop empathy, the ability to put themselves in the shoes of others in order to understand them.
How did the teachers feel about their experience in the project? On the stage of the 2015 eTwinning Awards, they said: “we became a big family in which each person gave ideas. The whole project benefited the creativity of pupils and was a great motivation to pupils and teachers and managed to keep the focus of the project in the team. Collaboration was the foundation of the work.”
FUSE is a project that aims to promote intercultural understanding through a variety of cross-curricular skills among four different European countries. The project explores festivities, cultures and traditions, traditional recipes and music, with the final aim to create an intercultural song in 4 different languages promoting equality, understanding and respect.
“In this project we decided to introduce etwinning to our students through music and through the values of cultural awareness and understanding and sharing. This collaboration was fantastic.” was the comment of the founders of the project at the eTwinning Prizes.
