Our students...

("Meet Me in Dreamland" will play after the teaser) One of the key benefits to an education based on travel is the crash course on local social, political, economic, and environmental issues offered in each country we visit. At least once per term, however, a local hot-button topic ends up dominating international headlines:  Greece’s financial crisis and the calls for a “Grexit" while we were in Athens; the Boston Marathon...

Each term at THINK Global School includes at least one extended weXplore adventure. It's a chance for our students to venture outside of their host city -and sometimes their comfort zone- to truly experience the local culture. Our Sweden term was no different, and after embarking on an eighteen-hour train ride, our students found themselves in one of the most secluded and beautiful places on earth: the Arctic Circle. Enjoy...

Recently our students had the opportunity to embark on a distinctly Swedish adventure, complete with dog-sledding, cross-country skiing, and a look into the culture of the Sami people who have called northern Sweden home for centuries. But before that monumental trip, our students had the opportunity to visit a culture where bulldogs are celebrated instead of sled dogs, and people are more likely to play cricket than go skiing. I’m...

Through experiencing the world firsthand, these students have become talented communicators and expressive individuals that share how the world affects them. Starting our...

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...

Last month, during our UK weXplore, I took fourteen students to get fitted for kilts at the Highland House of Fraser in Inverness, Scotland. I must say, each time I plan an activity involving traditional dress I get a mixed bag of looks and reactions from my colleagues and students on whether donning cultural dress is acceptable or disrespectful. Hopefully through this blog I can clarify my opinions on the...
