The European Parliament now has a dedicated telephone number for all those struggling with the English language's sometimes bizarre grammar and illogical spelling. Staffed by English-speakers from the assembly's Directorate-General for Translation, the helpline was run as a pilot project among linguists before being opened up last month to all and sundry. "There have been approximately 100 calls over the period since the start, with a significant increase in traffic after the full launch in June and we can expect the number of calls to rise as colleagues in the European Parliament seem to find this service very helpful," says spokesman Armin Wisdorff

Students shouldn’t only be listeners. They should also interact with learning content. Quiz is one of the possible interactions that gives great results for long-term knowledge. There are four basic types of questions: multiple choice, single choice, true/false and fill in the blanks. As I’ll explain, these types serve slightly different purposes, but the main purpose of all quizzes is assessment.

the pedagogy behind the tool and use it because it addresses our students’ cognitive needs, not because it is available or exciting.
developing critical thinkers with the ability to find, reflect on, curate and synthesise information.
developing lifelong learners who will be able to create and use their Personal Learning Networks to self-educate and grow.
educating digital citizens, that is, responsible members of an increasingly global and interconnected world who know their rights and responsibilities; people who can make informed decisions about the content they create or share and its impact on themselves and on the other members of a digital community.
