As regular readers will know, I am an eTwinning Ambassador (that is a very old picture!). I say ‘I am’ as, whilst I’m no longer in the UK, I am hoping to continue to help promote and encourage involvement in eTwinning now I’m in Switzerland. Why? Because I’ve seen the difference it’s made to my school […]

I’m at NCSL in Nottingham at the UK National eTwinning Conference. This afternoon we’re having a Teachmeet and I’ve decided to share about one idea that has come from our Comenius Regio project and specifically a visit to the zoo. Here’s the presentation (lots of pics!) and the link to my blogpost that expands on […]

Whilst I was in Nottingham, I met many lovely people frm across Europe. One such ‘lovely person’ was Lidija from Croatia who, as well as a teacher, is a writer and had asked if she might interview some people for an article. Guess who got volunteered? You can watch my interview below, and also others […]
Thanks to Lidija from Croatia, here are some brief highlights of the ‘TeachMeet styley thingy’ at #etwpdw, showing some of the people about whom I blogged earlier this week. Thanks to eagle eyed @joedale for spotting it!
Below is my seven minute micropresentation from Teachmeet styley thingy (I think that name could stick!) at the eTwinning Ambassadors meeting #etwpdw. In my seven minutes (I think the lovely @digitalmaverick gave me a little longer….) I talked about 1. using Wallwisher to collect ideas, have asynchronus discussions and review learning / progress. I set up […]
Yesterday, as the European eTwinning Ambassadors PDW at National college of School Leadership in Nottingham drew to a close, I took part in what Drew Buddie aka @digitalmaverick entitled ‘a Teachmeet style-y thingy’. Drew introduced the idea of an ‘unconference’ explaining both TedX and Teachmeet before opening the floor to others to share their 7 […]
Michael Purves shared his ‘tale’ this morning. A pretty inspiring tale it was too, taking him from a ‘despondent, stuck in a rut’ teacher into an eTwinner extraordinaire running eTwinning projects between 40+ countries. His journey started in 2007 when he was browsing the LTS website with a colleague and came across eTwinning. Having registered his interest, […]
Today, 5th May, marks the 5th birthday of eTwinning. The birthday was celebrated across Europe with balloon releases, cake eating and national events. In the UK we were encouraged to plant blue and yellow flowers – the colours of the European Union and also the eTwinning logo. At Whitehouse Common, 1DS marked the event in […]
People often ask me what eTwinning is all about, and, as an eTwinning Ambassador, I try to explain. The eTwinning experience is tricky to put into words until you’ve experienced it, so this video is just the ticket. It has no words and is therefore useable in any country, and it says a lot about […]
