The Project and the European Prize
This project will help our students to reflect on war and peace.
The product of this project will be handed in for the special task of European Prize 2016.
"The European Pupils’ Competition enables students to collaborate across borders. Thanks to support from eTwinning, one of the largest European online platforms for educational exchange, school classes from different countries can work on together. This collaboration will take place within a password-protected online ‘class room’, called TwinSpace. Here, students will have access to various innovative tools such as blogs, chats, online notice boards and many more. In addition to being creative and varied, working with eTwinning also encourages students to develop their skill set in media and languages and fosters intercultural learning.
It’s definitely worth participating: the best projects have the chance to win cash prizes totaling 8000 Euros! If you have any further questions or are unsure of how to incorporate online tools into everyday school life, eTwinning’s staff members will be happy to assist you. [...]
To enter the competition though, it will be necessary to engage in an eTwinning partnership of maximal 5 partners and with at least one German school. Closing date is 13 March 2016." (https://www.kmk-pad.org/ew2016.html
