We’ve been very fortunate to work with a range of fantastic educational institutions and companies from all over the world. Find out a little bit more about these organizations, and how we’ve partnered them, below. If you’d like to team up with us, get in touch at [email protected], or by using the contact form below.
We admire the objectivity and thoroughness of the Financial Times, and are very proud to have an active partnership with them. We unpack at least one of their articles every month for the TOK newsletter, which is then published in their section for TOK teachers here.
The Financial Times’s Secondary Schools Programme enables any school to sign up for free access to their articles, and is a fantastic resource. Follow the link for more details.
‘We want to ensure that all students at ECIS member schools know they can become the doers of the future, by encouraging them to be thinkers.’ …
…And we completely agree, which is why we are delighted to join the ECIS as a partner organisation! This statement embodies how the theory of knowledge course benefits students.
We helped ManageBac to develop their section for the TOK course, wrote their quick start guide to the course, created the TOK Coordinators’ Guides (for those who are Creating a Department, and for those looking to Introduce Excellence), and delivered a range of webinars in association with them.
Cambridge University Press
We partnered with CUP to deliver a number of workshops and other events in schools such as the Stephen Perse Foundation in Cambridge, and Nesibe Aydin Schools in Ankara. We also made a selection of videos on aspects of the TOK course, such as this one on Knowledge Questions.
Ned Riley’s fantastic site for IBDP history follows a very critical approach to the study of history, so we feel a very close affinity to their work! Michael and Ned worked together as fellow humanities and TOK teachers at Newton College, Lima, and continue to share ideas. You can find some of the brilliant History Rising notes here, which we use to explore historical perspectives.
The Orwell Foundation
We’ve long thought of George Orwell as the ‘patron saint’ of theory of knowledge, so we’re delighted that one of our latest partnerships is with the fantastic Orwell Foundation.
Here’s a link to their prestigious Youth Prize, which asks students to write an essay on a particular theme every year. We encourage all eligible schools to get involved!
