News pieces from September

Posted by Maria on September 26, 2010

Hello eTwinners all over Europe!

Welcome back (from summer vacations)!
I believe that you will have started to teach and planning ahead for the new school year. As an eTwinning member, I should admit that I have felt nice working with colleagues from various educational backgrounds while participating in the previous year’s Learning Labs events. I hope that in the future we will have the opportunity to further collaborate in some school projects.
So, wishing to share more with you, I will keep reporting on the latest news concerning the Greek National Support Service (NSS) actions.

5th National eTwinning competition
Did you carry out an eTwinning project with Greek partners in the school years 2008-09 and/or 2009-10? Was it awarded with the National Quality Label? Have you talked with them recently? Well, you must be wondering why I am asking all these questions…… The reason is that your Greek school counterpart can apply for the 5th National eTwinning competition.
How much time is left? Within four days’ time they must submit their entries unless they have already done so.

A few things about the rules
The competition is aimed at students’ groups of a wide age range (5-12, 13-15 and 16-19 years old): Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools. Apart from those categories, the projects under selection cover two additional ones, that is a Comenius-eTwinning and an Environmental theme. Applicants’ submissions are eligible only for one of these five categories.
The evaluation scheme is going to take place in two stages. At the first stage, five candidates will be shortlisted for each category while, at the second final stage, two will be awarded a prize. Among the selection criteria, special emphasis is placed on the Twinblog progress reports and the publication of their project outcomes, but also on the sufficient completion of the application form fields.

Awards ceremony – Attendance of the event
The ceremony event is going to be held at the premises of the Ministry of Education, Lifelong Learning and Religious Affairs in October/November 2010 on a date to be announced. The ten winners will be rewarded with trips to attend Professional Development European Workshops and/or ICT equipment for the school institutions and their students.

Hurry up! 🙂
