You can use many tools while creating or editing a new Erasmus+ project. Willingness to develop yourself and/or your students , to see new countries and new cultures will be the biggest guide to you. Beside these main tools, EU helps you to create new projects by the EPALE (Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe), eTwinning , School Education Gateway and so on.
So let’s have a look at these tools to learn what they work for:
EPALE is a European, multilingual, open membership community of adult learning professionals, including adult educators and trainers, guidance and support staff, researchers and academics, and policy makers.
EPALE is funded by the Erasmus+ programme. It is part of the European Union’s strategy to promote more and better learning opportunities for all adults.
EPALE does this by supporting and strengthening the adult learning professions. It enables members to connect with and learn from colleagues across Europe, through its blog posts, forums, the Partner Search tool, complemented with physical gatherings.
eTwinning is a platform which works for the stuff who work in a participant school in a EU country (such as teachers, principals,librarians etc.) In this platform the participants communicate each other, develop projects and work with a collaboration to feel this most exciting teaching community and to be the part of this community.
Presented in 23 European languages, the School Education Gateway is a single point of entry for teachers, school leaders, policy makers, experts and other professionals in the school education field.
Teacher Academy – Teacher Academy allows teachers to discover a wide range of training opportunities and resources for their classroom. It consists of a central course catalogue with information on in-service onsite courses by independent course providers, School Education Gateway’s own free online courses, and a selection of teaching materials developed by eTwinning teachers, EU institutions and other EU-funded projects.
Erasmus+ opportunities – Schools across Europe can benefit from the funding opportunities provided by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme, including support for training courses and teaching assignments for professional development, or participation in project partnerships. Discover the three tools that School Education Gateway provides for schools to prepare their Erasmus+ applications!
European Toolkit for Schools – The Toolkit promotes a whole-school approach to improve inclusiveness and prevent early school leaving. It can help school heads, teachers and others identify the needs in prevention of early school leaving and find suitable solutions. The Toolkit collects evidence, documents and good practices of collaborative approaches in and around schools that can be implemented in different school contexts.
