Yes, we haven’t met face to face. However, I wouldn’t be sitting here in Sweden full of expectations, excitement, and happiness waiting to meet you if it wasn’t for an inspiration of love. Yes, TGS will succeed. What comes from pure love, has to be successful. I can’t think of a more pure form of love than that of a mother towards her child. Alex, this is a gift for...

By Brad Ovenell-Carter, Assistant Head of School At THINK Global School we learn not about the world; we learn in the world. And part of that world is digital. I say “part of” because making the usual distinction between the so-called real and virtual worlds is misleading. It misleads us to thinking that the two are somehow different and that in turn leads us to acting differently ourselves and to...

TGS has two Interns or "Residential Dons" who will travel along with TGS students and faculty during the school year. But you may be wondering: what do TGS Interns do exactly? Both of our interns bring unique cultural and international perspectives to the TGS community. In short, an Intern is part residential adviser, part peer mentor, part counselor, part activity coordinator, and part “whatever may come up on a given...

Speaking with Steve Hargadon on Eluminate had that familiar quality of camaraderie that one typically experiences while sitting with a friend, talking over a strong cup of coffee, deeply engaged in a dynamic conversation. Instead, I was sitting in my own living room, in Montreal while Aron was in Beijing and hearing all the computer clicking sounds of participants exchanging ideas, emails, questions made it interactive and very 21st century....

THINK Global School gave me an iPad to play with two weeks ago, which was "real sweet" as one of my students said because it made us one of the first on our block with the newest cool tool. A technological revolution comes comes to the classroom It didn't take long to see that the iPad is not about the apps. They are great, gorgeous even. Developers are taking full...

Sandhamn Journey Photos and Text by Rachel Miletti Just to introduce myself, my name is Rachel Miletti, and I am here in Stockholm with my mother, who is developing the curriculum for Think Global School. Besides the fact that I wish I were two years younger so I could attend a school like THINK Global, I am really impressed with the way students are going to learn. I am reminded...

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...

Australia.  For anyone who has not been there, the name may bring up images which have mostly been imbedded into our conscience by the media.  A giant island in the middle of the ocean, pretty much on the other side of the world from us, where things are upside down and backwards from our perspective, where their summers happen during our winters, and vice versa.  Where we've heard their drains...

Yep - checking in again from 12,000 metres above, well, where am I at the moment...above the North Pole, I believe. I just woke up from the most peaceful nap and while this may not be earth-shaking news to our blog readership, it was by far the best sleep I've had in the past month. When I woke up I was flooded with memories of this trip. As Johnny Cash...

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...

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.

Hi Amethyst, tell us a bit about yourself.  I am a passionate educator with three years of experience, and I’ve just finished my first year with TGS. I specialize in the humanities, particularly history and writing. 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...

 Hi Andy, tell us a bit about yourself. I grew up in the beautiful industrial city of Birmingham, and after a career in mental health work and various bits and bobs, I qualified to become a teacher. 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...

Another school year is coming to a close at THINK Global School, which means graduation is right around the corner for the Class of 2021. And while their academic experience was different than previous classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our graduates continually demonstrated the characteristics we value so much as a community: perseverance, continual improvement, a thirst for knowledge, and the practicing of environmentalism, to name a...

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...
