DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

Students are asked to select one of the discussion questions beforehand in order to prepare for debating at the conference.

Students are then divided into groups based on their chosen discussion question. A spokesperson from each group will relay back the significant outcomes from the discussion in the feedback session.

Discussion questions:

  1. How is knowledge affected by structures of power?
  2. To what extent is contemporary science in fact built by numerous cultures of the past?
  3. What are the differences between a generalization, a stereotype and a caricature? How does each influence the way we think?
  4. How does prior knowledge affect the way we interpret the world we observe?
  5. To what extent do you agree that history resembles literature?
  6. To what extent do cultural biases affect how we acquire knowledge?
  7. Have technological developments enabled us to observe the past more directly?
  8. Is it possible to produce new knowledge without the use of technology?
  9. To what extent is the internet changing what it means to know something?
  10. How personal prejudices, biases and inequality become might “coded into” software systems?

PERCEPTION QUAKE

What do your students think and feel about the 'Theory of Knowledge' course? How have their perceptions of knowledge changed over time?

You will be asked to provide us with videos that show how students engage with TOK and the impact it has had on the way they perceive knowledge. These videos will then be used in the form of a collage at the opening session of the conference.

TOK EXHIBITION

The TOK Exhibition that will take place at the conference gives students the opportunity to experience first hand what it feels like to engage in a collaborative learning atmosphere.

We kindly remind you that any TOK Exhibitions from this conference are for the sole purpose of this exhibition and therefore cannot be used or sent to the IB for assessment
