TOK, After KQ

Hi, I chose my KQ a few days ago and as I don't have access to TOK teacher or mentors, I need a little help in developing it, and know what to do further. My KQ is "how do we know something’s bad for us?"

Please guide me on how to precede further and how to form a mind map.

If I were you, I would look into a real life situation (unless you have chosen that already). Then identify AOK's (areas of knowing) and WOK's (ways of knowing). If you are doing your presentation alone, it should be ok to choose 1 or 2 AOKS and 1 or 2 WOKs.

eg. Reason and Emotions as WOK's

AOK: ethics

From that point on, you develop an argument in favour of or against your KQ for each of the WOK's, considering your AOK.

Hope this helps. Is this for your presentation?

Dear astonky,

Thank you, you were very helpful. Although I would not prefer bringing Ethics anywhere near my presentation.

Also i wanted to develop my KQ further, to get a more precise one, as this is way too open.

Also is it okay to present the tok ppt in an animation presentation, if i create one myself.

Thank you for your time.

It's great you realised that already.

 

According to the guidelines in the syllabus, you can do the TOK presentation in any format, provided it is not simply reading an essay aloud.

Yes, ethics is notoriously difficult to do right in a presentation. That was just the first AOK that came to my mind with your KQ. But I guess language and/or human sciences would also work.
