It's in this course where I studied about a myriad of online tools to be used din class, from problem-solving tools, tools for brainstorming, blogging, making infographics, real-time collaboration boards, making portfolios, rubrics, polling and assessment. I took part in webinars and wrote on forums.
Besides learning, I interacted with teachers across Europe, made new friends and really had fun!
"eTwinning 3.0"
19-28 Sept 2013
A course in form of a plane flight entitled "Wings of eTwinning", with 200 teachers from Europe aboard, all enthusiastic and ready to learn. It refers to 'Education 3.0': there where the line between teachers and students is blurred, where we are all learners, discoverers of information, producers of new content and creators of new knowledge. The moderators wanted teachers and students alike to use and reuse all the available resources and to reshape them as they think fits the new ways of learning. In other words, they want us, teachers, to remodel and remake the internet in a way that empowers them to become successful for the world they live in. Thus, we learned how to use online tools, their purpose and possible outcomes in class.
eTwinning Groups
eTwinning Groups are private platforms for eTwinners to discuss and work together on a specific topic or theme. Moderated by an experienced eTwinner, each Group sets out activities and tasks for teachers to do and discuss. Topics vary from languages teaching and collaborative writing to experimental sciences. The aim is for eTwinners to share practice examples, discuss teaching and learning methodologies and find support for professional development.
eTwinning Webinars
eTwinning Webinars are an opportunity for eTwinners to become involved in Continuing Professional Development online.
