How do pupils interact during an eTwinning project? The new report“Pupils in eTwinning, Case studies on pupil participation” has just been published by the Central Support Service. Find out how pupils interact and what the impact is on their relations with their peers and teachers.
This report examines the topic of pupil participation in eTwinning based on information gathered from twenty-four case studies carried out by eTwinning National Support Services (NSS) between May and November 2010.
What is meant by pupil participation?
The concept of pupil participation is defined as: the ways in which pupils’ interactions during an eTwinning project actively affect their relationship with their classmates, project partners and teachers. The analysis is broken down into these three types of relationships and the case studies shed light on such interactions by focusing on the exchanges between pupils from different age groups as well as from different expertise or competence levels (e.g., ICT knowledge, verbal and written language skills, etc.).
The factors that act as enablers and barriers are examined and, in some cases, recommendations for future development are formulated based on the comments that came from the teachers interviewed.
What is the content of the report?
The methodology for the implementation of the case studies conducted by NSS is presented in Section 1; the analysis of the findings is presented in Section 2; and, finally, selected case studies are presented in Section 3.
