TOK Websites


This is a TOK related website produced by the original British IB school (which our own Principal attended!): United World College, Atlantic College in Cardiff. It's a well presented site focussing largely on the skills you require to produce an effective TOK essay and presentation. Experienced teachers of TOK outline for you how to prepare for each of your assessments. There is no content about the course. There are, however, useful links to other websites of interest. We have already put a link to the website on our ibtok page relating to the TOK essay.

TOK Websites

We've noticed that some of you have already started to use this website as part of your essay preparation. The site has been constructed by a teacher of TOK, Oliver Kim, who is based in Austria and who has tried to appeal to students through the use of podcast technology. The website is designed to cover all aspects of the TOK course, including how to prepare your essays and presentations, and the material Kim uses to discuss the range of topics is very good. There are numerous articles (largely on science and some of the WOKs) with specific examples and exploration questions at the end. Many of the tips he gives for essay writing and presentation work can already be found on this blog and the ibtokspot website. If you use this site for information and content, please do not simply cut and paste material! And make sure you add it to your reference list at the end of your essay.
