Re-imagining education is not enough; as I’ve said previously, it’s time to get specific. Integrating the concept of “longtermism” into curriculum mapping and design is one way to achieve this goal. Longtermism in education is a philosophy that emphasizes preparing students for the long-term consequences of their actions rather than solely focusing on short-term outcomes and test scores. The rapidly changing world requires a different type of education that equips...

The field of education is constantly evolving, and educators need to stay abreast of the latest innovations and ideas. That is why the TLS/ForesightLab, in partnership with ATÖLYE, was proud to host the “School on Mars” event last week. This exciting workshop was designed for K-12 learning designers and educators in the UAE who are eager to explore the future of education and imagine new possibilities. The event’s goal was...

Another Sunday, and another article, conference, or workshop on re-imagining education. It’s not just tiresome, but I’m coming around to the idea that it could be hurtful rather than helpful. What part of education exactly do conference facilitators mean? The term is now widely used, yet often fails to be specific in its direction or focus; who is accountable during this process? How inclusive is it? What evidence is being...

As part of THINK Learning Studio’s ongoing work to help educators foster creative learning mindsets in all learners — and themselves, too — we are excited to announce the launch of the TLS Foresight Lab. Why? Simply put, while we know that preparing learners for the ‘future’ guides every educator’s practice… …but rarely are educators provided relevant ‘futures thinking’ and ‘forecasting’ resources and experiences to help them do this. And even more...

Is traditional education failing our students? This is a question that I will be discussing at the Capital Club Dubai on January 30th, where I will be sharing my insights on how project-based learning (PBL) can help prepare students for the future economy and work. As an advocate of PBL, as many of you already know, I firmly believe that this innovative approach to education is better suited to the...

Beauty has an address. Where do you think of when you hear this slogan? Perhaps Paris? Barcelona? Maybe Sydney? There’s no denying the beauty of those three world-class cities. Yet, the slogan belongs to one of the most understated nations in the world, a place where white buildings splashed with pastels rest beneath dramatic mountain peaks. The slogan, as you have it, belongs to the small, welcoming nation of Oman....

Well, it’s happening. New York Public schools were first out of the gates by banning artificial intelligence in education, in the form of ChatGPT; sadly predictable, but we are where we are. It’s with mild curiosity that on reflection of almost every educationally driven conference I’ve attended in recent years, educationalists have argued for, against, and warned of the looming dangers and possibilities of artificial intelligence. Whether for or against, there...

Term One is officially in the books! Our CM1 community was based in Sabah, Malaysia's capital city of Kota Kinabalu, which serves as a gateway to the island's many natural splendors. Beaches, reefs, mountains, and rainforests became a classroom for students as they became familiar with the beliefs, practices, and traditions shaping modern Sabah. Students attended hands-on sessions during the term with four prevalent ethnicities: Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Indigenous....

Sabah is playing the role of a “classroom” for 34 international students as they spend two months learning about the State’s diversity and acquiring fresh experiences that they may incorporate into their lives back home. The students, aged between 15 and 17, are from the New York-based Think Global School – the world’s first traveling high school. They live and study in a different country every semester, engaging in place-based and project-based learning pertinent to the nations they visit.

Before joining TGS, I completed a Master's degree where I researched contextual learning and focused on adolescent psychology during my undergraduate education. Outside of the educational space, I enjoy music, dancing, yoga, card games,...

Where and how do you learn? How do you develop a passion for curiosity? How do you keep your mind open to new people, ideas, and possibilities? These are all questions being faced by educators and students as our world gains a more global context.  For a rare few who are lucky enough to have talented and equally curious teachers, this might happen in the confines of the classroom. But...

After a few years in the UK, I moved to the British Virgin Islands (which many viewed as an improvement even on Birmingham!) and from there on to Switzerland, my first stint at...

1. Hi Maxim. It's been two years now since you graduated from THINK Global School. What have you been up to in that time?  Since graduating from TGS, I have been attending the University of Toronto studying mineral (mining) engineering. I know you might be asking why, out of all engineering, I chose mineral engineering? It's because I want to throw myself into the space mining industry. I figured it...

Tattooing is the most misunderstood art form in Japan today. Looked down upon for centuries and rarely discussed in social circles, people with tattoos are outcasts in this country, banned from most public spaces such as beaches, bathhouses, and even gyms. 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...
