The eTwinning project Schoolovision is a primary schools' version of the Eurovision Song Contest, organised annually by Michael Purves (Yester Primary School, UK) and teachers of more than 30 partner countries. In the contest one class from each participating European country is asked to choose a song, representative of their country, practise it, record it, and finally upload the music video to the project blog one week before the real Eurovision Song Contest, after which they meet in an online video conferencing to cast their votes.
