Designing structures that explicitly address overload to support improved learning.
What is Qridi Core?
Qridiis an award-winning pedagogical tool from Finland that has the power to build student agency and ownership and help schools implement and sustain an authentic assessment culture. It is currently available in 7 languages.
Aligned with the values of Core & More Education, students and teachers now have access to both. Qridi was designed as an easy-to-use tool that inspires learners to actively plan and monitor their learning. Learners become involved in each phase of the learning process with their teachers’ guidance. Learning goals are made visible, implementation is documented and learning is reflected upon. Assessments are a natural part of all activities, and the resulting trend lines clearly show the levels of progress made by learners. The learning data analytics provide an excellent point of dialogue in everyday learning. For teachers, Qridi provides an excellent organisation tool, which, with the integration of content from Core & More Education, makes planning and monitoring student progress and attainment effective, efficient and manageable.
We call this Qridi Core. It allows teachers to direct their efforts according to needs and to guide and encourage learners on their individual learning paths. A common way of working and clear success criteria for all help to build an authentic and truly transdisciplinary learning and assessment culture.
Qridi Core Timeline – We are now entering Phase 2!
Our Phase 2 pilot has begun, and interested schools are encouraged to contribute to the project design. Together, we can create the solutions we need now. Indicate your interest hereto potentially join the pilot.
Phase 2 Pilot Invitation
Thank you for your ongoing interest in our project – designed specifically to support the effective implementation of your PYP programme!
We are currently in the process of confirming the schools we will be working closely with until December 2022. If you haven’t already booked a time to meet with me, please get in touch using the link to my calendar below.
Based on the feedback from our Phase 1 pilot schools and our webinar attendees, I’m confident that Qridi Core will make achieving the high aims of the PYP more manageable for teachers resulting in improved learning and agency for students.
I can’t wait to help to support your PYP programme and hope you feel the same!
Schools identify 2 – 4 areas of growth aligned with PYP Standards and Practices as core aims to monitor the impact of the Core & More approach.
An Impact Analysis will be completed at the start and end of the pilot to provide evidence of growth, supporting current development plans.
Individual support meetings will take place regularly (remote and/or onsite depending on location), and optional group support will be provided.
A response tool with guiding questions will be provided for the pilot based on your school’s identified core aims.
Who can pilot?
It is currently possible to pilot Core & More in individual classes and across teams in Kindergarten – Grade 5 (ages 5 – 12).
Requirements: 1x iPad/tablet/laptop per teacher + student access to iPads/tablets/laptops.
What support do we receive?
