Strategizing ChatGPT for Teaching and Learning
Monday, April 8, 2024 from 9:30-4:00
Graff Center
2020 Builders Place
Columbus, Ohio 43204

Rapidly evolving AI tools spark fresh classroom strategies to embrace this new technology, helping students use these tools responsibly and effectively. This session explores why and how we can use ChatGPT to help students refine their research, communication, and reflection skills, become better inquirers, and benefit from personalized learning experiences. Using the inquiry techniques, thinking frameworks, and student-centered learning central to TOK, teachers will have an opportunity to try ChatGPT-based classroom activities and adapt them for use in their own subject classrooms.

A Deep Dive into TOK Assessments
Tuesday, April 9th, 9:30-4:00
Graff Center
2020 Builders Place
Columbus, Ohio 43204

TOK, the gem at the core of the DP program, fosters the skills students need to understand the nature of knowledge itself and to reflect on their formal studies. Student success is assessed in two unique ways; a curation and exploration of knowledge artifacts, and a concept-driven comparison between two disciplinary areas. This session offers a deep dive into the goals and strategies of both assessments to help students improve their performance.
