The extended essay is an independent, self-directed piece of research which is highly regarded as a tool to help IB Diploma Programme students learn the critical thinking skills and processes associated with carrying out research, enabling them to move more comfortably into the realm of universities, colleges and career.
An online EE café session took place on Thursday, 29 April 2021 where IBDP Year 2 students explained the entire process required to complete the IB extended essay- from the initial step of choosing a research topic, through effectively searching for information and organizing their resources to presenting their findings with accurate references and citations.
Students were prepared to explain and identify the subject in which they were writing their essay and the topic that interested them. Their presentation included an organized electronic space which was used to record thoughts, reactions, ideas, and to keep track of resources required for their EE. They also presented snippets of interesting findings they came across in their reading, problems encountered and solutions found wherever applicable.
The presentations surely convinced the audience that students have done research, are making progress on the research question, and that they know their topic well.Read More

Students work collaboratively and Knowledge is jointly constructed by students in collaborative groups. The educator helps students develop motivation towards interaction in the well planned collaborative process.

The session was focused on the importance of ATL skills, Learner Profile attributes, TOK and interdisciplinary links in the teaching and learning process. The participants including students and educators from various IB schools participated in the activities conducted during the session and shared insightful ideas using padlet links. The differentiation strategieswere shared and discussed through various tasks during the session, such as padlet graphic representation,choice board, think pair share, mind map, mini collaborative tasks, Mini task 3 min presentations, exit ticket padlet, concepts, field of inquiry and area of exploration cards based tasks and reflections.
Collaborative tasks and groups are structured so that teams of students must rely on one another to share resources (e.g., materials, knowledge, experience, insight, and skills) and communicate with each other in order to complete a task and arrive at a consensus best achieved with equitable participation of all participants collaboratively. This was the main motif of the session.
