The Diploma Programme: Theory of Knowledge
TOK, which is short for Theory of Knowledge, is regarded as the heart of the IB Diploma Programme. When asked about what makes IB students better ready for university than others, admissions officers tend to highlight TOK.
TOK forms the foundation of the whole programme and it elevates the DP curriculum to a level of sophistication not achieved by other qualifications. It provides an understanding of how and why we learn. It also operates within a clear framework for the knowledge produced in other DP subjects.
Recently our Year 12 Diploma Programme students have been reflecting on the nature of knowledge within the sciences. Together they create videos to reflect on how technology affect our ways of knowing (emotion, reason, language, memory, faith, sense perception, intuition and imagination).
We celebrate the Year12s achievements and wish them a successfully transition to their future college study and career development.
