ITGS     SL and HL

The IB Diploma Programme information technology in a global society (ITGS) course is the study and evaluation of the impacts of information technology (IT) on individuals and society. It explores the advantages and disadvantages of the access and use of digitized information at the local and global level. ITGS

provides a framework for the student to make informed judgments and decisions about the use of IT within social contexts.

Although ITGS shares methods of critical investigation and analysis with other social sciences, it also considers social and ethical considerations that are common to other subjects in Group 3. Students come into contact with IT on a daily basis because it is so pervasive in the world in which we live. This

increasingly widespread use of IT, inevitably raises important questions with regard to the social and ethical considerations that shape our society today. ITGS offers an opportunity for a systematic study of these considerations, whose range is such that they fall obove the scope of any other single discipline.

Curricular Objectives

The aims of all subjects in Group 3, Individuals and Societies are to:

Develop in the student the capacity to identify, to analyse critically and to evaluate theories, concepts and arguments about the nature and activities of the individual and society


 Enable the student to collect, describe and analyse data used in studies of society, to test hypotheses, and to interpret complex data and source material

 Promote the appreciation of the way in which learning is relevant both to the culture in which the student lives, and the culture of other societies

Develop an awareness in the student that human attitudes and beliefs are widely diverse and that the study of society requires an appreciation of such diversity

Enable the student to recognize that the content and methodologies of the subjects in Group 3 are contestable and that their study requires the toleration of uncertainty.

The ITGS course embodies global and international awareness in several distinct ways. It explores the advantages and disadvantages of the access to, and use of, digitized information at both the local and global level. Teaching and learning activities should weave the parts of the syllabus together using the ITGS triangle(Strand1, Strand2 and Strand3) and should focus on their interrelationships so

that, by the end of the course, students are able to appreciate the connections between all the different       strands of the syllabus. The way in which the strands can be approached is flexible and any starting point is acceptable, but the study of real-life scenarios based on current events must be used as a support for teaching.
