Exploring TOK

The exploring TOK padlets enable you to delve more deeply into the core and optional themes, and the AOKs, via the latest real-world events and issues.

Use the padlets to construct new TOK lessons, augment our three different course structures, or provide students with material for the exhibition and essay. They can be used by either specialist TOK teachers, or other DP educators.

The Exploring TOK padlets are one of our key resources to help students take ownership of the course, give teachers the flexibility to create their own TOK lessons, and help learners to become authentic critical thinkers.

Download a sample version of the exploring history padlet here. It showcases our learning should happen in the real-world and how TOK can be used to help make sense of issues and events.

Help your learners to exit their echo chambers!

Our online and in-person workshops offer the usual support for students writing the essay and exhibition, and TOK departments designing great courses.

But our training sessions go much further than this: by focusing on authentic critical thinking, they demonstrate how to help learners confront, rather than confirm, their biases and assumptions, and exit their echo chambers. This makes them accessible and relevant for all teachers, whatever their subject or programme. Read more here.
