When we tell people about THINK Global School, one comment that we often hear is "why didn't this high school exist when I was in high school". I often wonder what it is about TGS that led people to make that comment. While different people may have different reasons as to why they wish they had TGS as an option back in the days, the strategic integration of technology and...

Just as the bridges of Stockholm link together the people of its 14 islands, so does technology represent the thread that connects all of us on this planet. When I was in high school, I hardly knew how to send an email and the only room in the school that had computers was the computer lab - a stuffy, dusty room in the basement filled with humming machines that were...

When you’re involved in a new venture of any kind, one of the most important elements of your work is to “spread the word”. Those of us closely involved in transforming THINK Global School from the vision of its founder, Joann McPike, to a fully-realized school have, therefore, been very diligent in sharing information about TGS in a variety of ways: website; meetings with educational, technological, and service organizations; newspaper...

I read a very good and well-received piece written by Leo Babahuta tonight. The argument really grabbed me - until the solution: "unschooling."  I loved the assertion that creativity is alive in children.  The concept of teachers as facilitators grabs me every time I read it and write about it myself.  And the discussion of the workplace of tomorrow being so very different is something we've written about extensively here...

In designing the academic program for THINK Global School, I have been thinking a great deal about curriculum lately. Curriculum – the collection of courses studied at a school, or the collection of courses studied during one’s career as a student. Curriculum Development is the creation of such collections of courses. My job with Mosaic Curriculum Consulting is to create such course collections to express the mission and vision of...

The concept of risks often goes hand in hand with that of opportunities. In risks, we can find opportunities; and opportunities also carry a certain level of risks. I have often been amazed by the risk taking culture here in Asia. A very simple example that I can draw from Hong Kong is the enthusiasm in horse-racing. As one of the largest racing organizations in the world, the total turnover...

A few blogposts ago, I mentioned how I felt about leaving home and the fear associated with it. Today, here I am again, sitting in a Boeing 777 aircraft, 30,000 feet high, but this time, I’m going home – the home where I originally came from. Imagine yourself as a THINK Global School student. You are in a completely foreign city for 3 months, spending every day with your peers,...

Our CTO, Mike Hourahine, will be thrilled to attend TEDGlobal in Oxford next week. Follow him on twitter @mhourahine! "When we look around us there are things we can observe: Buildings. People. Nature. And then there are things that run unseen through our lives.

I am sure that some of you must have heard of the saying "when life throws you lemon, make lemonade". Sounds like a good plan, right? The question is, HOW do you juice the lemon so that you can actually make that lemonade? When we are faced with setbacks and failures in life, others often tell us that time will heal the pain and disappointment. While time does help lessen...

Tattoos have an extensive history in Japan, and to truly understand the stigma behind them it is essential to be aware of their significance. The first records of tattoos...

Greetings TGS, Long time reader, first time blogger here. Some of you may have noticed that I can be a little patriotic... My friends in Abu Dhabi used to joke that New Zealand has "small country" syndrome because it is always determined to be the best. I think like the Canadians, we are determined not to be seen as the same as our more populated neighbours. With that in mind...
