eTwinning welcomes the new year with a new theme and the publication of the 2016 Monitoring Report.
Following the Paris Declaration on promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, through education, this year will be focused on supporting inclusion, and the development of projects that promote the fundamental values of inclusion itself whether they relate with pedagogical inclusion or social.
eTwinning is also welcoming the new year with the release of our ‘Monitoring eTwinning Practice’ report, which reflects on the pedagogical impact that eTwinning projects have on teachers. The report will be translated and published in hard-copy version, but you can already download a PDF version of it here.

RRI in practice for schools – Handbook for teachers
Under the RRI project, European Schoolnet has developed an educational handbook entitled “RRI in practice for schools. Handbook for teachers” with the aim of helping educators to develop and implement RRI oriented practices in the classroom as well as to include self-reflection processes in their daily practices.
While the handbook includes a set of short exercises to be used as a starting point to analyze how RRI-oriented educators’ practices are, the documents’ main feature is a set of guidelines and practice templates designed to integrate RRI in everyday school activities. Specifically it aims to support educators in designing academic practices integrating RRI dimensions and principles.
