Erasmus projects´ dissemination in Twinspaces

Looking for the dissemination of our Erasmus projects, we came to the conclusion that using the Twinspaces platform, provided by eTwinning, was the best option to do so.

eTwinning provides a platform for educational teams (teachers, management teams, library staff, etc.) from schools in participating European countries to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share, in other words, to feel and be part of the most attractive educational community in Europe. 

eTwinning is co-funded by Erasmus+, the European programme for education, training, youth and sport.

So we have set it up and, in order not to repeat the same things in the ERASMUS section of our website, we have linked each of the spaces per project in eTwinning to it.

These ones are our last ERASMUS projects in Twinspaces:

KA101 Focusing on and out: Attention to diversity and Environment (that includes teacher training courses and job shadowings)

ACREDITACIÓN KA121  (students´and teachers´mobilities)

KA229 "Construyendo Europa: Patrimonio, Cultura e idiomas" (With long and short term students mobilities)

KA101 (recently finished and with a punctuation of 8/10) Aprendiendo de Europa: Ciudadanía, Idiomas y Patrimonio Europeo en el Aula

It is generally believed that the dissemination phase must be concretized during all the phases of realization of the mobility:

 first: the dissemination must begin at the time of the planning of the mobility action, for example by communicating to others, through the school blog, their intention to participate in the training initiative;

• during: during the implementation of the project it is appropriate to tell others how the activities are taking place, what are the positive aspects encountered and what emotions the experience is arousing in the participants;

• after: at the end of the mobility action, a long-range and long-lasting dissemination of the results must be carried out, through which to highlight the positive implications that the project had on all the subjects involved (students, teachers and schools of origin).

Here we give you 5 suggestions to achieve a correct dissemination strategy:

1. to disseminate information about the project, defining both its general characteristics and specific activities, in order to highlight the added value and innovative nature of the project;

2. to convey and share the founding values of the European Union;

3. to expand its network of contacts in order to develop new partnerships;

4. to increase awareness of the opportunities offered by the European Union;

5. to bring out the added value and skills acquired by the participants of a mobility project in order to promote their employment and insertion in the world of work.

Involving your students can certainly give added value to the realization of the dissemination and communication strategy. Students, in fact, expert connoisseurs of new technologies, can facilitate the process by using storytelling techniques, then tell stories by thrilling, through websites, blogs and social media.

Difusión de ls proyectos ERASMUS a través de las redes sociales como Instagram

Hace unas semanas me invitaron a dar una ponencia sobre cómo hacer uso de las redes sociales, en concreto la de Instagram, para difundir los proyectos ERASMUS que desarrollamos en los centros educativos.

Fue una invitación de un buen amigo, Paco Luque, coordinador ERASMUS del IES Medina Azahara, y, aunque ya no realizo este tipo de actividades de formación del profesorado, a un buen amigo no se le debe decir que no.

De esta manera, ayer por la tarde programé una ponencia-taller para su formación en centros, a la que también asistió profesorado del IES Miguel Crespo y del IES Francisco de los Ríos, en Fernán Núñez. 

Mi propósito fue compartir, a nivel usuario medio, los recursos que la red social Instagram pone a nuestro alcance bajo la óptica de promocionar nuestros proyectos ERASMUS, visibilizar el esfuerzo en la programación y realización de actividades ERASMUS, difundir buenas prácticas y buscar fuentes de inspiración en otros centros/docentes, o serlo para otros.

Aquí podéis consultar la presentación que hice para las personas asistentes a esta ponencia-taller y que ahora también podéis ver todas los que estéis interesadas en este tema:
