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…

Awesome third week in  Open eTwinning MOOC! Interest is growing among participants as we are closer to the quality design of an eTwinning project. During this phase, we are encouraged to study the most important elements about planning a collaborative quality project and the quality in eTwinning projects according to the most relevant criteria.  All this research has helped us to create the draft, as the main weekly challenge of the week. This draft is going to be quite useful for the final project in the next units in #twinmooc. There have been excellent exchanges in our networks circles on…

Come the third week, almost mid-way in our MOOCadventure, we welcome one of the most exciting phases in Open eTwinning. We now begin the “assessable” phase, during which your project can be enriched with the ideas and points of view of other participants.

Although dates in a MOOC are just informational (task delivery will remain open until the end of the course), the idea is that…
