STANDARDS AND PRACTICES

The critical difference in student performance is critical thinking. A good student can attain a B by learning their content really well. Research shows that an A or an A*, can only be attained by developing a student’s core cognitive skills.

EDUCATORS SPEAK

Dr. John Jenckes
Garodia International School

Callido has developed a fun, organized approach to the ATLs and research. I reviewed all the modules before proposing the program to the teachers and students and believe they have done a remarkable job in creating a quality, computer-delivered instructional program.

Constandina Kyrkos, IBDP Educator
GEMS American Academy, UAE

Callido has been a great addition to our Diploma Programme.  Students have enjoyed the planned games and activities that go along with the models.  They especially loved the activities involving fallacies.  I can see the benefit from Callido in their class work.

Vishnu Karthik
The Heritage Schools

Callido has developed a very good course for critical thinking 21st century skills. Our students found them to be very engaging and our teachers feel that the program is short, effective and compliments their pedagogy well.

Melanie Kells
Candian International School

By using Callido Learning tools in a personalized and independent work environment, we saw an improvement in each students critical thinking and research skills.

Dr. Geoffrey Fisher
Aga Khan Academy

The Callido course has been extremely beneficial to our students because it bolsters the IB’s and the Academy’s approaches to learning – skills and strategies that determine not just what you learn but how you learn. By integrating skill development in an enjoyable platform, these core skills are easily absorbed through a process of reflection by the student which contributes to being better prepared for the challenges of the Diploma Programme.

Peter Morris
IBDP Educator

I am hugely impressed by these resources. It will make the task of creating a pedagogical environment where there is a solid skills base for teachers to work from a lot simpler. It allows educators to focus on particularly important issues [and skills] …. without starting from scratch. In my opinion this will be one of the best ways to impart the skills demanded by IGCSE and IBDP, especially for ATL. In fact, I would say that it would be negligent of a school not to make this exciting new program available to its students.
