Visible Thinking in TOK

Visible Thinking in TOK

Our Diploma Program (IB DP) course in Theory of Knowledge (TOK) is a subject in which transfer is a crucial Approaches To Learning skill, and also a lifestyle.

As IB DP students commence their second year in TOK, it is of paramount importance to make connections between the information they have acquired in all subjects, as well as the knowledge they have acquired or constructed through experience.

These connections will help us wonder and encourage us to challenge ideas. We consistently follow a routine of looking back at the ideas generated in previous classes in order to visualize new understandings and insights into the world we have gained.

By becoming engaged in this process, we become aware of how many more questions arise. Our questioning and reflections prove that knowledge is not static; and that we are transformed in the moment when we consider different perspectives.

The use of visual thinking tools is key to our learning process in TOK.

DP文凭班学习认识论

在毕业班IB DP课程里的认识论课(TOK)上, 学习如何转化知识是一种重要的学习技能,或者说一种生活态度的体现。

IB DP的学生学习认识论课已经是第二年,如何把课堂上学习的知识与自己的生活经历和经验关联起来对这个年龄的学生至关重要。

这种关联将帮助我们思考,鼓励我们挑战各种观念。我们不断地审视已有的观念,目的是创造对已知世界新的理解和新的领悟。

如果我们持续采取这种学习方式,我们将会意识到更多的问题被提出了。这种提问和反思证明了知识不是静止不变的;当我们换种角度看待事物时,我们也被改变了。

思考过程的可见性是这个过程中一个关键的方法。
