eTwinning Twelve Years On: What do teachers say?

It is this time of the year that in eTwinning we publish the eTwinning report where we analyse the impact we have on schools, teachers and students all over Europe and beyond.

Almost 6,000 eTwinners participated in the 2017 survey and we are delighted to announce the results. 

90% of the respondents reported that the top skills most impacted by eTwinning are their ability to teach cross-curricular skills and project-based teaching skills.

However, eTwinning’s impact not only affects teachers but also their schools and students. Students are not only becoming more creative but also more collaborative with their teachers and fellow students.

Over 90% of respondents state that eTwinning has had a positive impact on increasing student motivation and fostering collaborative work among them.
