eTwinning offers a safe 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, in short, feel and be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe. Teachers who register in eTwinning are checked by the National Support Service (NSS) and are validated in order to use all the eTwinning features.
