If you’d like to connect with other like-minded schools and teachers to share the DIALLS Teacher Resource Bank or have a go at running DIALLS lessons in collaboration with another class, here are some networks that might be useful.
eTwinning is “the community for schools in Europe”, with over 200,000 schools and nearly 1 million teachers across Europe who work together, learn from each other, develop projects together and share good practice. It provides an opportunity for teachers and schools in one of the European countries involved to collaborate and develop projects together.
Council of Europe Democratic Schools Network
The Council of Europe Democratic Schools Network supports schools across Europe in building and maintaining democratic culture and promotes projects that favour inclusion. It promotes the sharing of expertise and provides networking opportunities for schools. You can share DIALLS, and other good practice, with other practitioners across Europe by becoming a member of the Network – member schools have their projects presented on a dedicated webpage so thousands of education practitioners across Europe can learn about them.
European Schools Project Association
The European Schools Project Association is a collaborative open network of teachers and schools. It focuses on IT-based innovation in education and aims to promote collaboration and cooperation between pupils, students, educators and researchers, support professional development of teachers and provide access to international networks.
