eTwinning is the Community for Schools in Europe

eTwinning offers a platform for staff (teachers, head teachers, librarians, etc.), working in a school in one of the European countries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and to be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe. eTwinning promotes school collaboration in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by providing support, tools and services for schools. eTwinning also offers opportunities for free and continuing online Professional Development for educators. Launched in 2005 as the main action of the European Commission’s eLearning Programme, eTwinning is co-funded by the Erasmus+, the European programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport, since 2014. Its Central Support Service is operated by European Schoolnet, an international partnership of 34 European Ministries of Education developing learning for schools, teachers and pupils across Europe. eTwinning is further supported at national level by 38 National Support Services.

eTwinning Portal

The eTwinning portal is the entry point to the eTwinning world. Available in 28 languages, offers news from the eTwinning countries, professional development opportunities, information about recognition as well as examples of successful projects.

eTwinning Live

Where teachers experience eTwinning community to its full potential. Teachers can search for other registered eTwinners and schools, connect with them and follow their activities. Teachers can access all the online and on-site events created by eTwinners, and can also create their own. Through eTwinning Live teachers can create their own projects in which they can set off activities on different topics and key competences by collaborating with two or more teachers and their students. Teachers can find online professional development opportunities that eTwinning offers at European level. Learning Events are short, intense and enjoyable courses that introduce teachers to a topic, stimulate ideas, and help them develop their skills. Learning Events typically involve a commitment of 4-6 hours. Online Seminars are live online video sessions of one hour where teachers have the chance to learn, talk and discuss a variety of themes. Teachers can also join eTwinning Groups - virtual places where eTwinners meet and discuss specific subjects, topics or other areas of interest.


The place where eTwinning magic really happens is the TwinSpace; a safe platform visible only to the teachers participating in a project. Students can also be invited in the TwinSpace to meet and collaborate with peers from their partner schools.
