We have just started a new eTwinning project together with schools from France, Turkey, Belgium, Italy and Spain. It’s entitled “Collaborative Vampire Stories Writing” and its idea is to introduce the Gothic movement in literature and other fields, to write vampire stories in groups composed of students from different countries. We also want to work on vampire movies, play games together and first and foremost – make international friendship!
Our online brainstorming activity:
Here are the ebooks we have created as a part of our current eTwinning project:
We have taken part in two eTwinning projects at our school so far:
Our first project “MUSIC CONNECTING PEOPLE” focused on something teenagers are interested in most – music. Not everyone likes History, Maths, Biology etc. But there is probably not a single high school student who would say they don’t listen to any music at all. Hence the idea – a project about popular music. It’s major aim was to develop and improve students’ language competence through various tasks focusing on music. Students looked at music from different perspectives bearing in mind the connections music makes between people.

Our second project:
CULTURE TO LIVE TOGETHER – Wrocław & San Sebastian 2016
The aim of this project was to build a cultural bridge between the two cultural capitals in 2016, Wrocław and San Sebastian (Spain).
In the first part of the project students got to know each other so that they could interact with confidence throughout the whole project. They got in touch with each other and tried to learn as much about the other person as possible. Interaction outside the classroom was also encouraged.
In the second part, students from both countries made videos introducing their hometown, everyday life and gastronomy. In the project several videos were made and students were requested to comment on all the shared content.
It was also very important that apart from learning about a different culture, we tried to broaden our horizons by raising awareness of social issues in Europe/the whole world. In order to achieve this, students had a ‚challenge’ every week which included posting and commenting on visual contents related to a given social issue.
Our major virtual meeting space and channel of communication was our project Facebook group.
