TOK 1, Day 46 (1/3): Learning Values



Aims & Objectives
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Essential Questions
  • How does learning occur?
  • What are the values that we hope to engender in the IB Program?
Agenda
  • The IS/OUGHT Problem - Grades (the IS) vs. Learning Values (the Ought)

  • The Learner Profile as a Framework for assessment



HW:

  • Please write a quick blog post (200 words?) before next class in which you reflect on this proposal regarding assessment.
    • What advantages do you see in this model?  How might it change your approach to the course? How might it change the culture of the class?
    • What drawbacks or unintended consequences might this new model have?  Do you have ideas for ways to counteract or avoid these drawbacks?
