Helping schools deliver a life-changing cognitive experience for learners & teachers since 2009

Join schools in more than 100 countries using our resources to deliver TOK & critical thinking. Our resources are innovative, engaging, and time-saving, and will help you to place authentic critical thinking at the heart of your whole school’s learning journey.

WE’VE BEEN HELPING SCHOOLS SINCE 2009 to offer a genuinely life-changing cognitive experience to their students. Our resources are all designed around the principle of authentic critical thinking, meaning they can be used by any educator – regardless of their subject or programme.

In a recent member survey, 93% said our resources save them time planning and teaching, 97% said they improve students’ understanding of the course, and 86% felt that TOK essay performance was raised. Below are a few more unsolicited comments from a few of our members; read more on our testimonials page.

DEVELOP CRITICAL THINKING WITHIN A REAL-WORLD CONTEXT Our resources for both DP and non-DP provide students with a cognitive framework, and introduce them to range of inspiring thinkers, that will help them to make sense of a fast-changing and confusing world.

AUTHENTIC CRITICAL THINKING As educators, we talk a lot about critical thinking. The problem is, we all have a slightly different definition of what it involves, making it difficult for us to work together to develop the right skills, and hard for students to evaluate their cognitive progress.

We’ve come up with a clear, practicable, and measurable definition of critical thinking, which we prefer to term ‘authentic’ critical thinking (ACT), to reflect our belief it should (only) happen within real-world situations. ACT underpins everything we design, for both our TOK and non-TOK resources. Watch the 90-second video to find out more!
