What is knowledge? Are there different types of knowledge? Is knowledge 'justified, true belief' as Plato claimed, but how do you know that what you know is indeed true?
Mrs Barańska's TOK class have been exploring some of these philosophical ideas. Through collaborative work, each group has designed an ideal education system that would best equip students with as much knowledge as would be necessary to create a 'well-rounded' individual as they put it. Their education programmes consisted of many disciplines and ranged from elective language courses, cooking classes to mindfulness practices, just to name a few.
This was a great attempt to 'challenge the current paradigm' in education. I do invite you to watch Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk for further reference: HERE
