What is the relationship between knowledge and culture? Can new knowledge change existing values and beliefs? Who owns knowledge? What role do material tools play in the production of knowledge? Are some things unknowable?
On the last Friday of the school year, Year 12 students put on their Theory of Knowledge exhibition as the culmination of the first half of their IB Theory of Knowledge programme. Teachers, Year 11 students, and a Year 8 History class were able to hear from the Year 12 students about the three images of real-world objects they had each chosen and displayed, along with their written thoughts on them, on a variety of questions like these. This was a fascinating experience for both students and teachers, showing a great example of curious, engaged students applying questions to the world and their experience of it.
