Social sciences and humanities workshop

Dear colleagues, my name is Madli-Maria Naulainen and I am a history and civics teacher in Kuressaare. I look forward to meeting you all in Tallinn. In our social studies work-group on 2nd October we will share our best practice on our projects and tools we use. Getting to know each-other better and sharing our interests will help us work out new project ideas and register those in eTwinning. If some of you don't have an eTwinning account yet, please do register yourself, then it will be a bit easier and faster to create the projects on-line. You are also welcome to show us your projects or interesting findings on computers. See you soon!

eTwinning portal workshop on Saturday morning

Hello everyone,

I'm Owain Wright from the UK eTwinning National Support Service, I'm looking forward meeting you and working with you all this weekend. I just wanted to post some information about the eTwinning portal workshop that I'll be running on Saturday morning.

The workshop will be carried out on the eTwinning portal which you will need to be registered on - to do this you need to go to and click 'Register Now' if you haven't done so before.

The session will involve practical activities on the eTwinning site such as finding partners, registering projects and communicating with other teachers. A copy of the Task Sheet that we will be using can be seen below:

Gustav Adolf Grammar School is waiting for social science and humanities teachers

In Gustav Adolf Grammar School teachers will visit a lesson about e-services in Estonia. In the computer lab they will get to know how the teachers in Gustav Adolf Grammar School work and cooperate as well as gain practical skills in making timelines. The tour will end in the school museum.

Tallinn Secondary Science School is waiting for science and math teachers

In Tallinn Secondary Science School the guests will be taken on a tour in the historical building and the management of the school will be introduced. It is possible to visit a class of biology, mathematics or chemistry. The teachers and students of the school will show how different equipments and learning environments are used in the study process (Moodle -abbreviation for Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment; Verniere Lab equipment; Robotics Lego Mindstorm NXT).

Welcome to Tallinn contact seminar weblog

The multi-lateral eTwinning contact seminar between Denmark,  Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and the UK will take place from the 30th September to the 3th October in Tallinn.
The target group of the seminar is  secondary teachers.

The aim of the seminar is

    * to encourage eTwinning project work between secondary teachers;
    * to share the best practices, how ICT supports the learning-teaching process at secondary level;
    * to experience and share new teaching methodologies;

During the seminar we also introduce the eTwinning  portal. Part of the activities will be carried out in the schools, where we study how ICT and new technologies are integrated into the daily learning-teaching process.

The new school year has started and we do hope that during the seminar all participants will find eTwinning partners for this schoolyear and new partnerships and projects will be planned.

The seminar takes place at  Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia. Free wifi is available in the venue and all participants are kindly asked to bring their own laptops. On the 1st of October participants have a chance to visit schools.  

The online registration is open until September 20.

We also ask you  to contribute to our workshop blog. After the registration the blog's invitation will be sent. You are very welcome to share in the blog your expectations and thoughts prior to the contact seminar.

Looking forward to seeing you in Tallinn.
