Partnership protocol through Internet

The European Commission highly supports school partnerships (see partnership file), because they show to include cooperation work on the field of education.

In this report, partnerships are defined through the use of Internet and multimedia resources and other exchange communication devices (electronic mails, videoconferences, development of web sites, etc) that allow schools to establish relationships and teamwork with external school participants. They contribute to a global solution to school exchange programmes. This global framework must meet all necessary conditions for successful partnerships, in particular by organising international meetings, promoting frequent exchange of news, developing projects of common interest, and letting schools to communicate with each other to improve project results.

To reach this, eSchola 2003 puts forward the following elements:

a) Organisation of virtual meetings, online news, chat, videoconference, electronic mail and forum.

b) Development of common projects and supporting materials, by, for example, limiting the field of collaboration and by making use of e-learning programmes.

c) Regular communication around current projects, by establishing a feasible communication programme run by tutors from each school who are responsible for organising the virtual meetings according to all project needs.

Establecer un programa de comunicación con responsables en cada escuela que programen las reuniones virtuales en función de las necesidades de los proyectos.

Candidates for partnership need to meet one or some of the conditions above.
