start small
A project does not need to be huge

Teachers often realise the potential by starting with a small project

The relationship will grow if it works

Eventually involving more teachers...

...ideally the whole school

Can be coupled with town twinning programmes

Or Comenius projects

Start small...
examples of etwinning projects



Many schools out there wishing to find partners in Malta!

Added value - projects can come from both schools

Examples of eTwinning projects


walking through time
“We are a primary school with 256 pupils and we are interested in eTwinning with a primary school in Malta to support our current Primary Seven (11/12 yo) class project on the local impact of WW2 in the Highlands. We wish to get a different view of the experience of this time from a different location for our children.  We have a small number of able children who we would like to involve in the initial eTwinning process…”Walking through Time
