The Criteria Indicators of a good project
Pedagogical Innovation and Creativity
  • Creativity: Pedagogical and methodological aspects of the project are original or not very common in eTwinning.
  • Innovation: The project has meant new ways of teaching and learning for the students and teachers involved, including collaboration within the school and fostering creativity in students.
Curricular Integration
  • The project is integrated in ordinary lesson plans (activities, contents, objectives), including reflections in subject scores/evaluation.
  • Other subjects and teachers are included in the project (Secondary indicator, with no penalisation, unless work plan and goals aimed at demand some degree of interdisciplinarity).
Collaboration between partner schools
  • Planning, coordination and assessment at teachers' level in both schools (evaluated in terms of frequency, continuity, intensity and relevance)
  • Collaboration among students in partner schools (evaluated in terms of frequency, continuity, intensity and relevance)
Use of Technology
  • ICT tools used are appropriate according to the activities and goals.
  • Creative use of ICT in the methodology and outputs, considered in relation to the school context and the age of the pupils involved
Sustainability and Transferability
  • Sustainability in the school: the project is not an isolated event but has become an integral part of the activities and the educational objectives of the school, including other school initiatives and projects carried out also in collaboration with other bodies and the local community (i.e. Comenius partnerships, parents, external experts, volunteering associations, or any other educational project)
  • Transferability: aspects of the project can serve as a model for other teachers and an example of good practice. Procedures and organisation are clear or well documented, so that they can be replicated.
Results and Benefits
  • The extent of effects of the project results, including dissemination outside the school.
  • Educational and pedagogical relevance of results and benefits.
