And the oscar goes to... is an e-Twinning project created in 2012 by Petros Michailidis of 5th Primary school of Alexandroupolis in Greece together with Christelle Vouillot from Ecole Primaire de Rolampont in France. In this project 8-9 year old pupils from the 3rd grade in France worked together with 11-12 year pupils from the 6th grade in Greece to create short videos on topics such as traditional food and customs, but also bullying and hooliganism. Through the video production and storytelling they learned to express themselves in a new way and were made aware of international collaboration.
