Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal is the only digital media database that has been designed to specifically support Diploma Programme (DP) subject teachers, Theory of Knowledge (TOK) teachers, and students.

All resources are created from detailed long-format filmed conversations with more than 80 top researchers at leading universities around the world – including three Nobel Laureates. Footage from these conversations is then extensively edited into videos and combined with a 1-page PDF that provides a spectrum of relevant information for direct use by subject and TOK teachers.

The portal contains resources specifically created to support students with their Extended Essay and other internal assessments, TOK essay and TOK exhibition, and a vast array of pedagogical supporting materials for both subject teachers and TOK teachers.

User-friendly subject guides are supplied for each of the 21 DP subjects covered where associated motivational content and curriculum relevant overlaps are clearly displayed for optimal use in class and remotely.

The quality of the resources is consistently impressive and each one is directly linked to a specific area of the curriculum, making lesson planning very straightforward. The students really engage with the material and the way in which it brings aspects of the curriculum to life as well as engaging them in thinking about Theory of Knowledge ideas in a direct way. I cannot imagine teaching without it now.Naomi Williams, DP Coordinator

In planning my lessons around the new Theory of Knowledge curriculum, I have embedded the wonderful resources from Ideas Roadshow’s IBDP Portal into my daily classes.  The articles, videos, and examples are invaluable in helping my students to conceptualize Theory of Knowledge ideas within real-world contexts. In addition, Ideas Roadshow provides students with an ideal on-line environment in which to conduct their research as they ponder knowledge questions, plan their exhibitions, and write their essays”. Dr. Carolyn Norris, Theory of Knowledge Teacher, TASIS England
