September is the month where most European teachers and students go back to school. myEUROPE wishes you all a good start of the school session. Stay close, as this school year our project will provide more practice examples and teaching and learning opportunities.
Best regards, Petru
A learning object is a digital module built on certain didactical sequences aiming to enable a learner to acquire knowledge and skills on a specific topic or theme. This school year myEUROPE plans to publish a collection of learning objects (LOs) to help teachers and students integrating European citizenship across the curriculum. A group of 40 teachers from all member states and candidate countries has already started to discuss, prepare and design some LOs. See who is in the group.
Learning objects make learning easier This article briefly introduces "learning objects" and discusses some of their attributes to understand why they have become very attractive instructional and pedagogical tools. The article also provides explanations about the basic stages of designing a learning object, from a simple idea and pedagogical approach to computer implementation.
European Day of Languages Since 2001 the European Day of Languages has been celebrated on 26 September, when most teachers and students go back to school. We invite schools to celebrate the day with a quiz designed by myEUROPE. The quiz addresses students from secondary schools and focuses on intercultural learning. It may be used as a lesson or complement lessons on Europe and its cultural heritage. The quiz is available in English.
Our latest poll Does Europe need a Constitution? This is the question of our new poll published on the front page, in our three languages: French, German and English.
A teachers' guide to collaborative projects The guide is available now in 13 languages. The latest language versions came from Dorota Suchacz (Poland), Ruta Aukšpole (Latvia) and Robert Marinšek (Slovenia). Thank you to all of them.
Festival of foreign languages This is a report about the annual festival of foreign languages in Germany which encourages primary and secondary schools to share their contributions in the field of theatre and media.

myEUROPE is a European Schoolnet project. It aims to help teachers raise their pupils' awareness of what it means to be a young citizen in Europe. By involving a network of more than 4500 schools, the diversity of Europe is brought into the classroom via the Internet.
