"Let's discover Europe" e-twinning project 2012-2013
- Public link to TwinSpace: http://new-twinspace.etwinning.net/web/p82020
Students from all over Europe (some of them Special Needs students) exchange information about their respective countries, using a question-and-answer game. Once all the data has been collected, each country creates an ID card about a partner country; all the ID cards, built on a common template to allow unity, are collected to end up with an online booklet presenting Europe (Europe is understood here as European Union + a few volunteer countries not belonging to EU (yet).)

- Tools to be used:
e-mail, Forum, MP3, Other software (Powerpoint, video, pictures and drawings), Twinspace, jigsawplanet, Voki, Communitywalk, GoogleDocs, Slideshare, Prezi, Smilebox, Wallwisher, Animoto, Picturetrail, Photopeach ...
The students use English as a means of communication. They learn the basic facts about all the countries of Europe, using one another's answers to create their booklet about Europe. They use quite a lot of varied ICT tools (forums, wikis, online survey, online jigsaw puzzles, photo / video montages, onlipe maps ...)
- Work process:
The two founders were in charge of reminding all the members of planned calendar and activities. The other members were free to choose which activities they want to join - except for the two most important activities for the final output: answering the students' questions and creating an ID card about a partner country.
- September / October: My school and I (interactive games to get to know one another + photos of the schools.)
Some presentations from Bulgarian students:
- October: a postcard from my country (exchange of real mail between the different partners)
- November - March: questions about the different countries (interaction between the partner countries).
- December: How do you celebrate Christmas in your country? (exchange of information)
Christmas in our school (Zaraevo, Bulgaria) - see here
Students from Zaraevo are writing Christmas wishes to all their project partners - see here
- March/April: map creation - show us your country (collaborative online map + paper maps for some countries)

Students from Zaraevo made for all their project partners and send "martenitsi" and "Happy Grandma Marta" wishes as a part of the Bulgarian tradition - see here and the presentation about the Martenitsi - here
- April-May: Let's create a book about Europe (collaborative work). Let's create a quiz about Europe (collaborative work, based on all the information gathered throughout the project.)

Better knowledge and use of English as a means of communication. Better knowledge of ICT tools. Better knowledge of Europe, sens of European citizenship.
