The role of social interactions and cognitive processes in learning is evident for teachers and educators. Nowadays there is a challenge to transfer the theory into practice, to build an environment in which learning science is integrated with the practical use of technical, linguistic and intercultural skills in cooperation with peers from other countries while communicating through ICT. eTwinning projects in science, geography and biology show that schoolchildren can successfully work together in international groups. Both theoretical ground, added value of such cooperation in science and hands-on examples based on eTwinning projects undertaken in Polish schools rewarded on national and international levels will be presented as well as the eTwinning action as part of LifeLong Learning European programme.
