As it happened in the first edition, this MOOC was conducted in English and sparked interest in many areas around the world, but especially in South and Eastern Europe. Although the number of total participants that started the MOOC (174…

Bye-bye #twinmooc. Hello, eTwinning

It’s after-dinner time at #twinmooc. The five-course menu is over and this Thursday no new dishes will be brought to our buffet table. This does not mean that we have to leave the restaurant at all. For many people, these after-dinner talks are the best part of the meal. We still have over one week (until Friday, 02/06) ahead for new projects to be submitted, assessed and shared, new partners will meet, and all sort of plans will be made for our near future as eTwinners. Everybody ‘inside’ the MOOCs (Facilitation Team, technicians, authors…) as well as all the spaces on…

Collaboration and ICT are the stars of the week at #twinmooc

After more than one month working on it, #twinmooc has possibly no secrets for most of the participants. We have been surfing around, doing activities, overcoming challenges and writing dozens of messages in the different social networks. We have also learnt about the key elements of a project, as well as how to make it more social and more digital. Some may have already visited the specific workspace of the eTwinning Platform, either by means of a standard registration or using the ‘practice’ space provided for MOOC participants who don’t meet the requirements for that ‘standard registration’. Now it’s time…

You may click the link to switch the active language. Awesome third week at #twinmooc!!! Interest is growing among participants as we get closer to the final design of a quality eTwinning project. All the research and shared reflections of units 1 and 2  make sense now that we can use them to shape a first draft of a project that will, eventually, be our gateway of access to the whole eTwinning experience. There have been…

#twinmooc two weeks later.

#twinmooc is getting older. Two weeks is almost half its life and as far as we can see, it’s growing safe and healthy. We’ve reached the ‘round number’ of 1,000 participants and expect many more as new activities, challenges and events are being known and the word is being spread. Remember that registration is permanently open throughout the duration of the MOOC at http://mooc.educalab.es/ Along this second week we have been setting the stage for what will be the ‘raison d’être’ of this MOOC, that is, designing a collaborative learning project that can, eventually, be the basis of an eTwining…

After one week of #twinmooc

When we are about to turn the first week of “Open eTwinning” we would like to share with you a summary of the activities and challenges of this first week. If you have not yet completed all the challenges, or you haven’t even started them, don’t worry; the MOOC will remain open until june 2 and it’s only you who decide the rhythm of your progress. Let’s start revising a few numbers just to have a broad idea of the size of the digital conversation which is taking place within this MOOC. After a week of activity, more than 900 people…

Welcome to “Open eTwinning” 2nd. edition

We are happy to welcome you to this new edition of “Open eTwinning”, a Massive Online Open Course organized  by the Instituto Nacional de Tecnologías Educativas y de Formación del Profesorado (INTEF) and the Spanish eTwinning National Support Service . As you probably know, a MOOC is a self-access learning course which takes place in an online platform with the support of other social networks like Twitter or Facebook.  Upon registration, you’ll find plenty of possibilities to improve your knowledge on the topics of the course as well as help others to learn by sharing your findings, thoughts or ideas….

For the first time in a MOOC INTEF, the total number of enrolments from other countries was higher than the number of registrations from Spain. This was actually to be expected since this MOOC was our first-ever conducted in English, particularly aimed at all…

Or, maybe the real insights of eTwinning are what we have been doing so far? That is, designing quality projects and improving them by means of self-reflection, peer feedback, ICT tools and so on. Because, without a good project, eTwinning is but another space to help people…
