eTwinning

The first eTwinning Project was created on the 27th May 2013 by Ms Annabella Gauci.

Project Title: Advent/Christmas and Lent/Holy Week/Easter as celebrated in Malta and Croatia.

Short description of the project:

The pupils take photos with their cameras and upload them onto their computers. They will then attach them to an email and send them to their teachers. The teachers will save the attached photos into different folders on their computers. Each class will discuss each photo and together plan a PowerPoint presentation including information. When it is ready, it will be sent to the partner country to be shared with the partner class.
The whole process will take place twice; the first time during Advent/Christmas time in December 2013 and the second time during Lent/Easter in March/April 2014.
All the work will be uploaded on Twinspace as well as a Google website.
In Malta, the whole project will be done by Grade 5 pupils aged 9-10 years old.
In Croatia, the whole project will be done by Grade 3 pupils aged 9-10 years old.

The aims of the project were:

  1. The pupils will learn about Christmas and Holy Week as celebrated in another country so as to learn to appreciate a different culture from their own.
  2. The pupils will learn how to make good use of a camera to take photos and then upload them onto their computers.
  3. The pupils will learn how to attach photos to an email and send them to their teachers.
  4. The pupils will practice using word pad and saving their work and attaching their document to an email and send it to their teachers.
  5. The pupils will learn to save attached photos and documents to an email into a folder on their computers.
