Teacher's lifelong learning network - EU Lifelong Learning Programme - Agreement number- 2009-3574/001-001 - Project number- 505594-LLP-1-2009-1-BEKA4SRM



The project TeLLNet is to study the eTwinning network (currently over 86 000 teachers) through visualisation techniques, Social Network Analysis (SNA) and prospective scenario building exercises. Using these techniques, the goals is to dentify the main structures, actors, networks and Communities of practice that are effective in sharing practices, encouraging innovation and creativity at schools. In the other words, we want to better understand why some teachers get the "eTwinning" virus and are able to spread it around - and others not. Note that by "eTwinning virus" we actually mean a positive virus!


European Schoolnet (EUN) coordinates the project using proven management strategies for coordinating networks of schools and policy-makers at European level. As Central Support Service for eTwinning, EUN runs the collaboration platform, services and has experience of supporting teachers' online collaboration liaising directly with 31 of eTwinning National Support Services and the eTwinning Steering Committee. EUN acts as Project Manager (WP1), lead the dissemination and exploitation of project results (WP5&6), and provide quality assurance (WP7). EUN is involved in each WP to ensure that research is applicable for its networks: for school collaboration and for education policy makers at regional, national and European level.


Participating research institutes act as official WP leaders where their particular expertise is best applied:


  • Visualisation and Social network analysis (WP2)
  • Teachers Professional development work package (WP3)
  • Future scenarios and exercises (WP4)
