Get ready to take meaningful action in your classroom.

This workshop will focus on proven pedagogical strategies and innovative digital tools that educators can use to enhance their teaching. In this interactive session, participants will work with content from IB Diploma Programme courses and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as we explore effective and inspiring methods of designing lessons that truly engage learners in playing their part on the local and global level.

In cooperation with the IB

  • "I have been teaching for 40 years and find Kognity the most useful tool I have ever used. Easy to use, extremely well organized with superb illustrations, videos etc. The assignment system is also excellent. Wish it had been around in 1979!"

    Biology Teacher

  • “Teaching is very different to how it was 15 years ago. Students are so technology-biased now, they’re not even interested in opening paper textbooks anymore. Kognity has all the value a textbook has, but you’re presenting it in a format that students really will engage with.”
