The eTwinning project aims to encourage European schools to collaborate using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The project was born under the European Union's eLearning programme and it now part of the Lifelong Learning Programme.
The main concept behind eTwinning is that schools are paired with another school elsewhere in the Europe. The two schools then communicate using the Internet (for example, by e-mail or video conferencing) to collaborate, share and learn from each other. eTwinning encourages and develops ICT skills as the main activities inherently use information technology. Being 'twinned' with a foreign school also encourages cross-cultural exchanges of knowledge, fosters students' intercultural awareness, and improves their communication skills.
