New NANOYOU eTwinning toolkit available
(Nanowerk News) A new eTwinning toolkit has been produced in the context of NANOYOU to offer schools creative ideas to explore and learn about nanotechnologies. The toolkit provides guidelines to organise a class programme as well as pedagogical objectives, follow up suggestions and evaluation ideas.
eTwinning is a community for schools in Europe that gives teachers the opportunity and tools to join online collaborative projects, to get involved in educational networking and to participate in professional development activities.The eTwinning Portal -developed by European Schoolnet- is available in 24 languages and offers, among others, partner-finding tools, social networking facilities and online working platforms for teachers and pupils to collaborate online.
eTwinning toolkits are ready-made project kits that provide step-by-step guides to carry out eTwinning projects on different topics. The kits have been designed by the European eTwinning Helpdesk together with teachers from different countries. Each kit relates to a theme and provides information on the target group, objectives and pedagogical value of the activities. eTwinning Kits can be used as such or adapted to teachers' teaching context.
