About our SID activities
eSafety is at the core of eTwinning activities in 2021. Through the annual theme of ‘Media Literacy and Disinformation’, eTwinning will continue encouraging safe and responsible integration of digital tools and foster development of critical thinking for students and teachers with aim of raising awareness and inspiring action.
Teacher members of eTwinning will be encouraged to be involved in Safer Internet Day (SID) 2021. eTwinning will publish an article on the eTwinning portal, and eTwinning Europe social media profiles will support the Safer Internet Day 2021 campaign, sharing resources and ideas. Special group on ‘Media Literacy and Disinformation’ will launch on 09 February and will include activities, inspirational materials, guides and online events on the annual theme.
The eTwinning featured group ‘Bringing eSafety into eTwinning projects’ is open to all eTwinners using social media in education, especially those who are actively engaged in carrying out eTwinning projects. The general objectives of the group are to provide teachers with guidance on the subject concerning keeping pupils eSafe while using digital media in education. Furthermore, the group helps eTwinners to develop skills needed for when preparing their own didactic material on the topic of eSafety that they can use in their teaching practice. Group also offers a space for discussion, sharing and exchange of knowledge on the topic with other teachers.
What we are doing to support the SID 2021 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…
eTwinning proudly supports Safer Internet Day and will continue offering a safe and educative platform for students and teachers across Europe by tearing down classroom walls and connecting them with challenging and creative projects.
eTwinning is the community for schools in Europe. From pre-primary to upper secondary and vocational schools, eTwinning offers free and safe online platform for staff (teachers, headteachers, librarians, etc.), working in a school in one of the participating European and neighbouring countries. Registered users can develop online collaborative projects involving classes, take part in a variety of professional development opportunities, online forums with colleagues and professional networking across different countries.
eTwinning action promotes school collaboration through the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) and provides support, tools and services for schools.
eTwinning is an initiative of the European Commission, funded under the Erasmus+ programme.
