Ideas Roadshow’s comprehensive database of authoritative video and print resources featuring world-leading researchers has been explicitly created to support teachers and students across the DP curriculum.
We now offer webinars for DP coordinators, DP librarians, TOK teachers/coordinators, EE coordinators and Group 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 teachers to get a detailed overview of our IBDP resources. Did you register yet? Visit our webinars page here.
This page is divided in 5 sections to quickly find relevant information:
I. Introduction to Ideas Roadshow
II. TOK and TOK Connections
Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP expert resources uniquely connect fundamental TOK concepts and ideas to the front lines of research, tangibly demonstrating how TOK thinking is integral to successful problem-solving across a broad spectrum of subject areas. Both TOK and subject teachers will also value our TOK Connections Guides for 21 DP subjects to integrate TOK across the curriculum. For a detailed overview of our TOK resources (including TOK Clips, TOK Compilations, and TOK Samplers) plus Ideas Roadshow’s TOK Guide and TOK Connections guides, please watch the video below. Also, check out our page with further details about Ideas Roadshow’s TOK Samplers which feature experts across a wide range of disciplines. Each video consists of one-minute expert clips and every clip is paused briefly to highlight a sample knowledge question related to the material, here.
Concerned about the new TOK course? The video below illustrates how Ideas Roadshow’s extensive collection of TOK resources will help teachers make an easy transition to TOK 2020.
III. Extended Essay
Through the combination of an extensive DP-specific database of expert video and print resources in combination with innovative EE-related support materials (a comprehensive Ideas Roadshow Extended Essay Guide, Extending Ideas videos, and more), Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal offers a wealth of authoritative research materials to support students from start to finish with their extended essays, as well as other internal assessments. For more information and informational videos about our extensive collection of authoritative, citable resources to support student research for the Extended Essay and other Internal Assessments, please visit the Student section, here.
IV. Resources for 21 DP Subjects
Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal offers resources across 21 DP subjects. While some subjects naturally have more content and/or direct curriculum overlap than others, we are confident that teachers of every subject covered will find much that can be directly applied to their discipline. By highlighting relevant material in clear and distinct ways through the corresponding 21 Ideas Roadshow DP Subject Guides, we aim to significantly facilitate use of our resources both in and beyond the classroom. Please use our DP Subjects drop-down menu to find out more about specific subjects you’re interested in.
IV. Investigating Knowledge Blog
Ideas Roadshow’s blog is called Investigating Knowledge and features weekly posts illustrating different aspects of real-world TOK-thinking from our selection of expert researchers.
“An excellent blog with features from diverse experts and disciplines on knowledge and how we know what we know and whether what we know is reliable!”
