Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal – TOK in Action
Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal offers a strong pedagogical framework where TOK is the backbone of interdisciplinarity throughout all resources. Our user-friendly platform includes a particularly large collection of TOK video and (digital) print resources which uniquely connect fundamental TOK concepts and ideas to the front lines of research in fully-accessible formats for both new and experienced teachers and for students. In addition, you will have access to a wide range of unique TOK integration materials across 21 DP subjects to help subject teachers incorporate TOK explicitly and easily into their lessons.
More than 80 top researchers at prestigious institutions around the world have participated in Ideas Roadshow in our effort to connect the Diploma Programme—and in particular the DP core—with the fascinating world of research. This way we have been able to tangibly demonstrate how in the real world TOK thinking is integral to successful problem-solving and gaining knowledge. By having access to a wide range of real-world examples of how TOK-related thinking actually works in today’s research, students will be exposed to the diversity and richness of different international perspectives from leading experts around the world who all come from different backgrounds and cultures.
I. Connecting TOK with the world of research
All 300+ TOK resources that are part of Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal – TOK Clips, TOK Compilations, TOK Samplers, TOK Connections Videos – come with a helpful, downloadable 1-page PDF for each video specifying:
* related AOKs;
* connections with the optional themes;
* associated concepts corresponding to the knowledge framework;

You can now watch a recording of a TOK Webinar below to learn about our TOK Lesson Planner and how our resources can be used to quickly and easily invoke a spectrum of concrete teaching strategies for the core theme, the knowledge framework, the 5 optional themes and AOKs, while providing a wealth of additional student support for both the TOK essay and the new TOK exhibition.
II. TOK Integration Across the DP Curriculum
As mentioned above, Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal offers a strong pedagogical framework where Theory of Knowledge is the backbone of interdisciplinarity throughout all resources.
