EUPA has another Transnational Cooperation Activity (TCA) opportunity in the field of School Education. The TCA focuses on “Using e-Twinning in KA2 School-to-school partnerships” and will be held in Prague, Czech Republic between 29 August and 1 September 2018.
The TCA targets;
- teachers in secondary and post-secondary education (age of pupils 12-19)
- participants should be interested in learning about eTwinning and realization of KA2 School Exchange Partnerships with the use of eTwinning
- the pre-existing knowledge of eTwinning is not necessary, however, the participants must be registered in eTwinning before the starting date of the seminar
This TCA aims at promoting synergies between Era+ and eTwinning, inspire participants in using eTW portal for communication and collaboration in ERA+ KA2 projects and to help create networks among teachers involved in ERA+ and eTW projects.
ETwinning, as a portal for communication and collaboration in ERA+ School Exchange Partnerships projects, will be introduced to the participants and they will be offered the opportunity to meet other eTwinning users. On the other hand, the eTwinning participants will be given the opportunity to learn about the Erasmus+ programme, especially about their possibilities in the KA2 School Exchange Partnerships projects. The participants themselves are expected to take active part in the seminar, to become familiar with eTwinning and its possibilities in KA2 projects and to make contacts with teachers from other countries in order to find partners for KA2 project with the use of eTwinning. They are also expected to be willing to share their experience with KA2 projects (if they have any) with the eTwinning teachers, who are so far unfamiliar with the Erasmus+ programme.
As per normal procedure, the costs of the activity will be covered by the hosting NA while travelling costs will be reimbursed by EUPA.
