"Let's discover Europe" e-twinning project  2012-2013


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 ...

  • Aims:

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:

by Fatme and Ayshe

by Aidzhan and Fatme

by Sabie, Atidzhe and Remzie

  • 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)

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