The eTwinning report ‘eTwinning Schools and Shared leadership – 2020’ explores how eTwinning Schools operate and endorse a shared leadership approach, by examining their practices through the analysis of quantitative data and a qualitative investigation.
The quantitative data was gathered via a survey administered in Autumn 2019 where a total of 1, 261 eTwinning Schools shared their practices in respect to the five areas of the eTwinning School Mission Statement. The qualitative investigation focused on the case studies of six eTwinning Schools, which the eTwinning Central Support Service guided, supported and interacted with for 18 months via a range of face-to-face and online activities.
eTwinning, with its cross-border aspect, is part of the European initiatives in education, based on the claim that EU-wide cooperation supports the development of quality education. The eTwinning Schools, a special group within the eTwinning community, consisting of more than 3000+ institutions, embed such values in their school’s policies, practice and professional development with the support of school management.
