How can I adapt Kognity tools to my students' needs?
Kognity provides a large range of tools to use: textbook, notes, reading assignments, question assignments, exam-style questions, but, do all tools work for all students?
In this workshop, teachers will share with each other their experience with Kognity’s tools in order to broaden our perspective on how each tool can be used to benefit each of our classes.
Whatever happened to my students’ attention span?
The goal of this workshop is to develop the awareness of the current stimuli affecting students. We will also share with other other the challenges students face in terms of their ability to focus and maintain their attention. You will learn new techniques to get and maintain attention in class, as well as to aid in the development of time and self-management skills. Join us for this informational and interactive workshop!

Swimming Upstream with AI: Inquiry in the TOK Classroom
When thinking about AI, teachers are often afraid it will be used “downstream”, to replace the final products of what should be the students’ own inquiry. In this session, I will propose practical applications to invert this tendency and use AI instead as engaging and productive milestones for students to explore issues of knowledge in your TOK classroom.
You will walk away with:
- The principles for using AI tools as classroom resources to promote reflection on the TOK themes, the Knowledge Framework, and the AOKS
- Concrete ideas for activities that incorporate AI tools “upstream”
- Suggestions for class agreements that support productive use of AI while upholding academic integrity and rigor
