  1. Thank you for the replies. By the way, yeah, it is actually not necessary to make a TOK presentation interactive. It's just that everyone in my group made some sort of interaction, so I thought that would make my TOK presentation a little dull or boring. Also, I already have my real life situations and actually have a picture of "some fake-but-beautiful-ish-looking person", and that idea @whatislife mentioned is actually not a bad idea. I might consider it. But I was just making sure I had all of my questions answered. Thanks !
  2. So I already have my TOK Presentation ready, which is based on the topic issue of 'Plastic Surgery', and I already have my knowledge issues, WoK's and AoK's.. etc. However, it seems like every person who presented their TOK presentation in my class made some interaction or made their presentation interactive, I have NO clue how to make a presentation interactive... I was going to go with the idea of "Can someone tell me what surgical procedures are the most common? Anyone?" but that would sound way too monotonous Please I really need ideas to make a TOK presentation on 'Plastic Surgery' interactive, I'm literally out of time

    Anyone going to UBC vancouver this year (2014-2015)?

    exams are still in november for me although i'm actually applying for OCAD University in toronto or Niagara College in niagara falls (canadian side)
  7. During vacations, I decided to re-do my whole IB workbook from last year and this year (updating it) and I followed this guide: (the very same guide from ibsurvival) http://www.ibo.org/diploma/curriculum/group6/visualarts.cfm(the official site guidelines) http://www.ncbis.net/Editor/EditorImages/Visual%20Arts.pdf(and this one, i think it is official too) Not to worry though, I haven't thrown away or scrapped out my other old IB1 workbook, I still have it. I just decided to re-do and majorly improve it in a different workbook, that's all. After I finished and handed in to my teacher, he said that it probably won't be a good such a idea to do that, since my other IB1 workbook has already been graded. However he was quite impressed when I showed him my freshly new replenished workbook and that he'll maybe considered taking a look at it. The problem is that most of my classmates tell me that I'll probably fail about re-doing my workbook.. (they're probably envious, but maybe they're right??) What happens if I did all this work for nothing? Is this ok?

  9. Question: How are ethics involved in the study of Human Sciences? How do these affect our ability to move forward in our knowledge of human behaviour? Our last task for this semester, this involves Human Sciences and ethics, however I need help with the last part of the question which is "How do these affect our ability to move forward in our knowledge of human behaviour"? What does that suppose to mean? All help, guidance or advice will be appreciated, thank you!

    Tips for new IB student

    -Try not to procrastinate... and never postpone deadlines, it will just pile you up with more stuff. My biggest procrastination tool was tumblr... (I deleted it for good ). Quote from Marina Diamandis aka Marina and the Diamonds (who did the IB) on twitter: "Thnk God Tumblr wasn't around when I was in high school because I literally would have never graduated." -Finish the internal assessments ASAP. This literally helped me, I finished my extended essay (it's due for august, I think) and my other internal assessments (history, spanish and one studio work left for visual arts) -Have a back-up plan... let's say, your electronic information somehow disappears and you need to start all over again, so take a USB or a hard drive with you and treat it like your baby because all IB assignments are crucial, to be honest. For example, for Environmental Systems and Societies, do not dare in deleting projects or tasks from the first IB year, because that piece of information could be an internal assessment (basically do not delete or loose any information from the first IB year in all courses, since the IB is a two-year programme). I also found helpful this trick a friend told me: when you're printing your assignments, always send them to your e-mail, because nothing is erased there (unless you do it, of course), and if somehow you lost your information in your laptop or USB, you can always check your e-mail -Organise everything in a big folder with sections... kind of like this one: http://styleandcentsability.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/blogmarch2010011.jpg, but bigger. Same with the electronic information: have folders and name each one with the specific course you chose (Folder 1: English, Folder 2: History, Folder 3: Visual Arts, etc...) -If you're a good listener and you can remember stuff what your teacher said in class, perfect. However, if not, have a little notepad and write any information your teacher said during class. This actually helped me a lot, my spanish and history teacher doesn't really care if we fall asleep or didn't copy any notes in class. -Always have a few intelligent buddies by your side haha... I usually stick with a friend who's a genius at Maths, since I'm so crap at it, and by the way, they can even tell what's for tomorrow or what's for this weekend, etc. -Even if your teachers are a little arrogant or unsupportive, never face them or get into an argument with them, IT'S NOT WORTH IT. I'm in my last year of IB and I'm taking it very serious. Mostly for universities in Canada or the UK.

    Several questions on Group 6 in general

    Well I want to study anything related to creativity (which include arts, music, theatre, film, etc), so basically yeah, it depends on the career you choose. Let's say, I want to study graphic design (visual arts hl and maybe english will be the courses that need more effort), or lets say... architecture (physics, maths and maybe visual arts, mostly for people who have good drawing skills, will be the courses that need more effort), so yeah and also i would suggest a 6-7 of the courses that will help you grant access to a particular University. My teacher actually told me that, apart from having a good IB diploma score, a good portfolio is crucial for admission with the visual arts course (if you want to study anything related to arts) and having at least a 6 or 7 in the final IB grade. I think my answer was too biased, so consider it if you want...
  12. I finished a few days ago actually, it was just our IB coordinator who was pressuring us... Anyway, since my theme is identity, I usually develop my ideas with surrealism techniques and the human aesthetic, of course, combing and using techniques from other artists, this time I'm using Louis Icart's techniques and water-colour for this chapter. 7 Deadly Sins, chapter: Lust: Just drawing a woman pleasuring herself and it looks like a Yin-Yang sign (don't really know how to describe, so i'll just post a picture soon), so basically it's vanity and lust, I guess. Gluttony: A woman eating a man's brains (which is not his brain actually, they're just fruits, veggies and other stereotypical foods) with a fork, whilst the man is showing a cold and frightened appearance. Greed: I call this one: having, pleasuring, burning and smoking IT ("it" means money). It basically shows a, sort of, comic strip of a woman having loads of cash (1st square), then just pleasures herself with the money (2nd square) and in the end she burns the dollar (3rd square) and proudly smokes it (last square). Sloth: A man stuck in a tree and the roots are linked with his body parts... so basically it just shows how the man won't move at all and stay where he is. Wrath: Basically the sign of 'drama', you know, the one of the sad and happy one? Yeah, so in the right side it shows a calm and steady women embracing her alluring beauty, whereas, in the other side (left), shows a choleric and evil one, and flames are coming out from their eyes and mouth. Envy: An angry woman-snake figure looking herself in the mirror with utter dissatisfaction. Pride: A woman looking herself proudly at a mirror and basically the expressions in her shows that she's incredibly self-obsessed and thinks she's better than others (this one's way too cliche, but oh well... I really like how this one turned out). So yeah, those are my studio works of this chapter plus the 13 other ones, but I don't feel like explaining each one right now haha. I might publish them in this website, but I don't know if it's allowed... I really have no idea, do you think I should publish it here? If so, how do I do it?? By the way, my subjects are already mentioned in my signature and my bio, check it out
  13. I was stunned by the video... By the way, I already have some other ideas and I have more time actually, our IB coordinator was just upset that most of the class had a maximum of 13 studio works.. so therefore he pressured us (not surprised). Thanks for the ideas though!
  14. -Anti-anxiety prescription pills -Calendar where i put all my dates and dues and whatsoever -USB or hard drive (i once lost all my electronic information on the computer) -At least one intelligent buddy to help me with Maths ugh -Family, supportive -Internet, laptop, music, pretty much anything that eases my stress levels -Ib survival (god bless)

    What does your username mean?

    My username comes from Marina Diamandis' album "Family Jewels", and I also think one of ACDC's album is called "The Family Jewels". Fun fact: Marina Diamandis, known by her stage name "Marina and the Diamonds", did the IB
