July Update
Keeping you updated as we design structures that explicitly address overload to support improved learning.
We are excited to announce four series of Feature Presentation videos to demonstrate our innovative digital technology explicitly designed to support IB programmes.
 
Series 1: PYP Essentials
Series 2: Achieving Balance & Clarity
Series 3: Supporting Stakeholders
Series 4: Going Further
 
You are invited to attend corresponding webinars each Monday where we can discuss in detail how Qridi Core can support learning in your school.

Schools and teachers can be confident that IB Standards and Practices requirements are met, including increased student agency and creating more time for inquiry as Qridi Core provides: 

  • Digital access to everything from concepts to ATL skills
  • Suggested content outcomes for 10 subjects for PYP students ages 5 – 12
  • Suggested alignments to streamline the planning process with the option to select your own connections
  • Feedback while planning and after students have completed their work to ensure balance

Developing Sustainable Leadership Criteria

Supporting middle leaders by collaboratively creating success criteria can positively impact student learning by developing skills and understanding in the areas of knowledge, effectiveness, impact, and contributing toward positive school culture.

The Power of ‘All’

Improve intercultural relationships and equity in your classroom using the power of ‘all’ as an addition to your 21st Century/ATL skills.

How students inspired the creation of Core & More

We need to ensure that there is agreement as to what stays on everyone’s plates so that the student learning experience is coherent and manageable and that we can meet the mandate we set out to which is to put the learning in the students’ hands where it belongs.
