Monitoring eTwinning projects, our stories
Transcript of Monitoring eTwinning projects, our stories
Monitoring project success
What do I monitor?
Let's try real monitoring
Rita Zurrapa - PT NSS
Massimiliano D'Innocenzo - IT NSS
José Luis Fernández - ES NSS
NSS PDW 2012
Since we have a lot of projects every year and it is impossible to follow each of them...
Since we need more classification...
Since there is no space for our comments as on the NSS-desktop during the life of a project...
Since we need something exportable from the NSS-desktop...
Improving the quality of projects.
Helping teachers with technical issues related to projects.
Keep contact with teachers after project registration.
What to monitor?
The teacher's experience in eTwinning.
Bugs, doubts, use of TS tools, etc.
Project development - eTwinning keys.
Who to monitor?
Why project cards?
Easy access: teacher desktop and NSS desktop.
Safe and private way of communication "teacher - NSS".
Easy to use.
Record of the contributions made by the teacher and the NSS.
Teachers are free to use them or not.
Useful information to evaluate Quality Labels.
1. The teacher writes his/her first PC.
2. The project is assigned to an NSS member.
4. Each NSS member is responsible for the monitoring
of the projects assigned to him/her.
5. Follow up taking into account QL evaluation, the
teacher's needs, etc.
6. Common monitoring framework for all NSS members.
What do teachers feel about PC
I'm not alone.
The NSS has "a name".
Gratitude for NSS interest in their work.
Monitoring is useful and meaningful learning for future projects.
Experiences from NSS (Italy and Spain)
General tips to monitor projects
Making up of a list of aspects to be monitored
Real monitoring of two projects
What is/isn’t Monitoring?
Monitoring is not at the end of the project.
Monitoring happens throughout the project.
There isn’t only one answer for every country.
There is a variety of ways in which monitoring can be developed.
We don’t want to give you the answer.
Monitoring as evaluation is not in a moment, but along all the duration of a project
Good reasons to monitor
21 countries have answered
Themes of Survey
Identify good practice examples
What do you assess?
What do you assess?
The process and progress of the project
Use of ICT
Resources (to check legality)
Dissemination of results
The content in the evaluation of the CSS
What do you assess?
Quality of work
Pupils/Students in Twinspace
Collaboration between partners
Use of tools within and outside in the Twinspace
Regularity of activities
Now it's your turn
We started to use
the moderation box
at the approval
for our purposes!
As we are not able (especially for lack of time) to follow each project, we tried to define a generic approach
We implemented a system to “mark” each project proposal:
1 poor proposal
2 normal/average proposal
3 special proposal (for several reason…)
It is very hard to figure out some information from the exported data at the moment
Now we can have “numbers” about:
How many project for each subject
How many eTwinning/Comenius projects
How many projects follow a CS
How many projects are potentially good!
Usually, teachers select a wide list of subjects for their projects… but we need often ONE subject to individuate specific projects
Based on the description, we can choose ONE subject for each project proposal to approve, the one meets better the content of the project
Project marked 1
Ask for more detail with a generic email, with suggestions and tips, in order to have a minimum content on the project
Ask for a direct action from the teacher, such as a translation or a clarification
These are projects with a good potential, and we would focus our attention on them, with a kind of monitoring after the approval:
After 2 or 3 months have a look at the TS
At the end of the scholar year, propose to the teacher to apply for the QL, to recognize her/his work
Where do I start from?
Let's work together and share ideas to make up a list that can be useful for all.
Need help?: Think of the QL criteria
Pedagogical Innovation and creativity.
Collaboration between partner schools.
Creative use of ICT
Sustainability and transferability.
Results and benefits
Make worth contributions
1. Do you receive Project Cards on a regular basis
2 . How many Project Cards have you received since the 1st of January 2012?
Every project that is registered automatically sends a Project Card.
Every new teacher that is added to a project gets a welcome Project Card.
All these Project Cards are in your statistics.
The countries that answered more Project Cards are:
3 . Who answers the Project Cards?
4 - What is the Project Cards content? Choose the 2 more frequent
5 - Do you use Project Cards to monitor projects?
6 - If you don´t use Project Cards to monitor projects, what is the reason?
7 - Do you do any project monitoring?
76% - Yes
24% - No
Do you monitor Projects?
76% - Yes
24% - No
From monitoring to Quality
Have a look at the basic information of the project.
location; students' age; project description; subjects involved; number of partners
Look for the strong and weak points of the project.
How will the outcomes be disseminated?
If the teacher has contacted you, maintain the contact.
If the proposals are general, provide examples.
Bear in mind the Quality Label criteria
What can you monitor?
Are the outcomes in the Twinspace/visible?
Is it easy to find the materials in the Twinspace?
Do new posts in blogs and forums have comments?
What ICT tools are used?
Are teachers administrators or members?
Do the teachers have a common plan?
Are the students members of the Twinspace?
Are the students underage? (safety concerns)
Are the students active in the project?

Nothing special to say at the approval
After 3-4 months, look for any further detail, TwinSpace, etc...
Regional School Offices & Ambassadors could play a role in the monitoring
(to be implemented)
...the “Soft” monitoring
Project marked 2
Project proposals subjects
Project proposal quality
Possibilities to monitor Projects
Project marked 3
Working in groups
You will have some project proposals
For each project
fill one sheet
You have around
for each project
At the end,
let's try to compare
And remember: there is NOT
only ONE right answer!
Teachers who contact the NSS through project cards.
