On Thursday, 18th January, a Callido workshop — pertaining to the Extended Essay — was held with IB1. As the Extended Essay is part of the core component of the IBDP, this workshop was essential for the development of our skills. The EE is all about exploring something that interests us, and this workshop ignited the curiosity necessary to successfully write an extended essay.
We began with an overview on the whole EE process, from thinking of a Research Question (RQ), and how to make it perfect, to the real-life applications to our EE in our professional life. After understanding the various components — such as scope, practicality, and engagement — we had an interactive session in which the Callido team made us play a game of Kahoot in which we had to break down and analyse multiple RQs.
The whole session was an extremely enriching opportunity for us and introduced us to the intricacies of the IBDP program in an interactive and fun way!
