The Spanish eTwinning National Support Service, from the Ministry of Education, has got in touch with me, as coordinator of the project, to let us all know that our etwinning project was worth a National Quality Label.
eTwinning Quality Labels are granted to teachers with excellent eTwinning projects. They indicate that the project has reached a certain national standard.
What are the benefits?
The Quality Label is concrete recognition to teachers and schools of the high level of their eTwinning activities. For pupils, this offers a boost to their work efforts, and for the school in general, a public affirmation of their commitment to quality and openness in European collaborative work.
Who grants the national Quality Label?
The National Support Service (NSS) in each country evaluates applications from schools for the national Quality Label.
What are the criteria?
A project has to broadly achieve excellence in the following areas: (1) Sustainability, (2) Use of ICT within the project, (3) Results and benefits, (4) Curricular integration, (5) European dimension, (6) Innovation/creativity, and (7) Overall quality.
From our virtual etwinning meeting point, I'd like to sincerely thank all of you, etwinning teachers and students, who have all worked really hard for it.
Congratulations to everybody!!!!!!
