These are the guidelines for blogging entries
You will be assessed on the basis of the below criteria. Your goal is to achieve ToK criteria based on the application of one of the Knowledge Question concepts below. You MUST consider this along side your chosen blog item:
1. Reality check: can we trust our immediate knowledge about the world?
2. Purpose and value: what is knowledge for, and how can we assess its value?
3. Connections: how do different ways of knowing and areas of knowledge interlink?
4. Knower/s: how does shared and personal knowledge shape our understanding of the world?
5. Representing reality: how is our understanding of the world affected by the way it is represented?
6. Perspectives: is our understanding of the world determined by our perspective?
7. Development: how and why does knowledge develop over time?
8. Authority figures: What makes someone an expert knower?
(Remember that your blog must be entered by the blogging deadline for review by your peers).
1. In 150 or more provide a reflection of content you have identified on the internet and relate this to one essential Knowledge Question concept listed above.

2. Provide a link, insert and article or add pictures or a video to allow the reader access to the same information.
3. Be creative, and most important … explore something of interest and have fun!
