Let's start eTwinning!



Last month, a total of 2644 eTwinning projects received the European Quality Label 2016 for their outstanding work and I am very happy to write the names of the teachers and projects from the Basque Country below these lines:

- Amaya Alonso
  IES Antonio Trueba 
  Project: Go look in the mirror


Amaya is one of our CLIL Seminar participants and she has kindly shared their project with us. You can access it from here.


Another three teachers whose projects have been awarded the European Quality Label are the following:

- Idoia Ajuria
 Artxandako Trueba Ikastetxea
 Project: IC what UC

- Maite Elejalde
  CEP Virgen de la Guia
  Project: Our eTwin diary

- Izaskun Insausti
 Txingudi BHI
 Project: My grandmother's stories

I would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to these teachers and encourage all of you to start taking part in eTwinning.  How can you start? I will gladfully spend some time in our next seminar session on this challenging project but in the meantime, I am sure that   the following video will be highly clarifying:





 Therefore, you can  start   joining the eTwinning Community by  registering on  https://www.etwinning.net/en/pub/index.htm. Then, you can   catch  a glimpse at  the  eTwinning Europe  youtube channel so that you check how eTwinning is perfect for CLIL contexts because it can be carried out in different languages and it  can be applied to any content area.

To be continued in January 2017…

Meanwhile, please let me say to all and each of you:


“You are a dreamer, and you are an achiever. May you dream and achieve bigger feats, with every passing year. Merry Christmas  and Happy New year 2017.
