As a part of the Comenius Week 2011, I'm organizing with my Institute the Seminar "School Beyond Borders - percorsi di innovazione dalla Valdelsa in Europa" (Teatro dei Varii, Colle Val d'Elsa, 03.05.2011).

The seminar deals with Comenius and eTwinning experiences in our area. Principals and teachers of Primary and Secondary schools of the Valdelsa will meet to share ideas, pathways and successful practice.We will have a representative of both Comenius and eTwinning National Agencies, who will introduce to us new opportuinities in the field of European projects. Comenius individual pupil mobility and implementation of eTwinning teams in the different institutes will be object of debate.The event will be hosted by Colle Val d'Elsa's Municipality in the Teatro dei Varii, inside the Mediaeval castle.

Introducing the idea of eTwinning teams

The eTwinning Conference 2011 was perhaps the most brilliant event I've ever attended as an educator. Maybe, that's due to the fact that I had the opportunity to attend it with my life-long eTwinning partner, Monika, my pupils and many of my colleagues. All the people who helped me and believed in my same values during these years were there. And I also met lots of eTwinning partners, we talked about professional and personal projects, we shared another part of our lives.

We all found something in Budapest. I found new ideas, together with Monika, on how to implement eTwinning teams in our schools. Here's my presentation for our workshop "Introducing the idea of eTwinning teams".

We - as eTwinners and teachers - have a bright future. And there's something I'm sure of: this future is not for us alone. We'll share it.
