What is different in taking ITGS HL online?

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • develop an authentic experience with the IT that is discussed and evaluated
  • access source material in a variety of media
  • learn at their own pace and in a location of their choice
  • study alongside students from around the world
  • regularly communicate with teachers and fellow students

Some things won’t be different though. Standards and expectations will be just as high as in a face to face classroom.

Activities and assessment

Students will engage the course content in a variety of ways including in-depth research, group work and weekly discussions focused on essential questions. They will also work on the production of a real world project for an authentic client.

Students are assessed on variety of formats that range from simple statements to in-depth and complex essay writing. Assessment is fully in line with IB criteria.

Advice from our teachers
