TOK - Theory of Knowledge: Acknowledging sources in a TOK presentation

Using sources of information in a TOK presentation

If you use a source of information in your presentation, you should acknowledge that source in the usual way, i.e. citation and referencing. This especially applies to images

If you use a powerpoint presentation or similar visual tool, you should provide a bibliography at the end of the presentation, with appropriate in-text citation where you use sources of information. This also applies to use of images. 


"If students incorporate the thoughts and ideas of others into the presentation, this must be acknowledged." (International Baccalaureate, 2013, p. 56)
