At THINK Global School, technology is your passport to success.
THINK Global School is a true 21st-century learning environment. Your arsenal of educational tools includes the most up-to-date apps, software, online courses, and digital libraries. Even mainstays such as parent/teacher conferences get a contemporary update via Skype. Instead of lugging around textbooks, you’ll access assigned texts through a custom online portal and read them on your personal iPad, and in addition to writing traditional essays and research papers you’ll also shoot and edit videos, record podcasts, and build multimedia digital collages.
Through our sophisticated technology program you’ll learn not only how to use today’s digital toolkit to express yourself and create meaningful global dialogue, but also how to adapt to a world of technology that’s changing as quickly as you are.

The NewMedia Lab
It all starts in your 10th grade year, when you’ll first learn to use top programs for research, content creation, and sharing on your new devices. From there you’ll begin acquiring skills while studying phenomena such as citizen journalism and becoming aware of the potential and the pitfalls of social media. As you grow more technologically proficient, you’ll learn new skills such as digital video production and animation and build your portfolio with creative work inspired by your travel experiences. By the time you finish the newMedia Lab program in Grade 12, you’ll know the technology so well that you could teach it!

Enhance Your Education With Online IBDP Courses
Intrigued by economics? Passionate about psychology? Bursting with business ideas? Dive deep into the subjects that fascinate you with online IBDP courses offered through Pamoja Education, the internationally recognized online education partner of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Online courses include class discussions, video presentations, screencasts, and live sessions, as well as extensive readings and homework; class size is limited to 25 so that teachers can facilitate engaging conversations and provide consistent, personalized feedback. Online courses span the course of grades 11 and 12. They are graded and credited just like their offline counterparts, and THINK Global students in grades 11 and 12 may elect to take up to two as part of their IBDP course selections.
Online Class Spotlight: Psychology
IB psychology adopts an integrative approach, looking at the interaction between biological, cognitive and sociocultural influences on human behaviour. The biological level of analysis demonstrates what all humans share, whereas the cognitive and sociocultural levels of analysis reveal the immense diversity of influences that produce human behaviour and mental processes. You’ll explore cultural diversity with an eye toward developing empathy for the feelings, needs, and lives of others, completing the course with an interdisciplinary overview of human psychology and an increased sense of international understanding.
