The eTwinning Prizes 2007 winners are heading to Città del Mare, Sicily, from 25-29 April for the second annual eTwinning Camp
Awarded on 23 February in Brussels as the top eTwinning projects in Europe for the 2005-2006 school year, teachers and pupils from the three winning projects will spend three and a half days together in sunny Sicily to meet their project partners face-to-face, learn about ICT tools… and have fun!
In light of the 50th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, the theme of the Camp is “Celebrating Europe with eTwinning”. In addition to meeting friends from other countries, pupils will also spend time learning about the history and everyday running of the European institutions.
Pupils will learn about fun and easy ways to create animation movies from Oscar Stringer; podcasting and blogging from Bart Vanhulle and Christina Crawley; Internet safety from Sofia Aslanidou; and European institutions and celebrating Europe from Silvia Dell’Acqua and Sylvia Binger.
Teachers will work on media education from Armin Hottmann; intercultural communication from Bettina Zeidler and Marta Hunya; and Internet awareness from Sofia Aslanidou.
Taking advantage of the sunny seaside area of Città del Mare, participants will also have the opportunity to play sports and go on afternoon excursions in the area.
