DP TOK/Extended Essay
The interdisciplinary Theory of Knowledge course is designed to develop a coherent approach to learning that transcends and unifies the academic areas and encourages appreciation of other cultural perspectives. This course is in part intended to encourage students to reflect on the huge cultural shifts worldwide around the digital revolution and the information economy.
