eTwinning: 10,000 schools are now registered
The Apostolos Varvanas Lyceum in Cyprus is the 10,000th school to have registered for eTwinning
The scheme encourages the formation of school partnerships over the internet, adding a European dimension to the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in school life. Launched in January 2005 the eTwinning action has quickly established itself as a major instrument for school collaboration in Europe, with 808 schools in the United Kingdom having registered so far. Pupils, teachers, headmasters, librarians and other school staff use eTwinning to add a European dimension to school life. Using the Internet, they work together in varied ways with peers in other countries: they chat, send emails and exchange ideas and learning materials. Prizes for the best eTwinning projects will be awarded for the first time in January 2006.
