A visual approach to the new theory of knowledge curriculum

TOK PosterIncorporating input from IB teachers, this poster presents the key features for the theory of knowledge (TOK) core requirement in a student-friendly and informative manner. The poster was recently redesigned to fit the new curriculum (first teaching 2013).

The vibrant new design makes this poster suitable for display both inside and outside the classroom. This eye-catching poster highlights the key features for the TOK core requirement for the Diploma Programme, and delivers an appealing visual approach to the new TOK curriculum.

Subjects on the poster include “Ways of knowing” (such as sense perception, reason, memory), “Areas of knowledge” (such as ethics, history, the human sciences) and more.

This revised (English) poster is now available on the IB Store.

Other posters in the core requirement series are creativity, action, service and extended essay.

The posters are also available as a core requirements poster set of 3, available here in three languages.

    I have a huge problem with faith being included in the way of knowing. It’s a way of believing, not of knowing.

  • Abena Bailey

    In the way that people ‘knew’ the earth was flat? Isn’t everything we ‘know’ really just what we believe until something proves us wrong? I’m not a religious person but in conversations with those who have strong faith, it is not a debatable concept – they ‘know’ that there is a god responsible for x, y and z. When exploring this WOK I would approach it from those terms.
    I don’t see faith as any less reliable than my ever-failing memory! ;p

  • Ana María Trigueros Pina

    Faith it’s not like believe in material things or scientific matters. You can study the historical proves of Revelation and you can assume that there are other realities that you can’t understand with your reason and, by the way, there are the most important things in your life. Scientific proves are ok for scientific matters but the most important questions in your life can’t be answered by scientific reason.

  • Bryce “the non-knower”

    I’m starting to teach IB TOK for the for the first time next week. (No formal training with IB or TOK yet). Does anybody have some good recommendations for resources, or introductory lesson plans for the first couple of weeks?
    Any help would be appreciated. 🙂
