To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
– Socrates

The Theory of Knowledge course encourages and enables students to question the very nature of knowledge. Getting our students excited about TOK, and all that it entails, often sets the tone of our TOK classrooms for the year ahead. How may we do this without bogging students down with academic jargon? 

With this quick introductory video, you can simplify the key elements of the TOK course for students and help them understand what to expect. Acquaint yourself and your students with TOK assessments and the kind of inquiries that can be embarked upon during TOK lessons!

  • The building blocks of the TOK course
  • How the themes and AOKs are designed around the knowledge framework 
  • What a TOK lesson looks like
  • How to plan a timeline for the TOK course and assessments
