#tokrew11 maps all human knowledge

My #tokrew11 students have been playing with their map of knowledge, an original metaphor they created to test the validity of the International Baccalaureate Organization’s claim that we can think of the structure of knowledge as something like a map.

They’ve used it to model the observed knowledge structures in classes at school.

And here they are mapping three abstract concepts:

  1. using memory to bring a barrel of facts and crate of skills from the land of math to the land of natural sciences in oder to solve a physics problem.
  2. the all the ways of knowing coming from all the lands (areas) of knowledge and converging on the arts
  3. the collision of reason and emotion in the current of belief off the shores of  human sciences, indigenous systems and religious systems

Once the school year is over, I’ll write up the whole project.
