Information Technology in a Global Society (ITGS)

The Information Technology in a Global Society (ITGS) Standard Level (SL) course is the study and evaluation of the impacts of information technology (IT) on individuals and society.  Students explore the advantages and disadvantages of the access and use of digitized information at the local and global level.  ITGS provides a framework for students to make informed judgments and decisions about the use of information technology within social contexts.  Students investigate how people are affected by systems already in use and those planned for the future.

ITGS Triangle

The ITGS triangle shows how the three strands are interrelated.  Throughout the course, "the activities should weave the parts of the syllabus together using the ITGS triangle, 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 following should be considered throughout the course:

  • The strands are not designed to be presented or studied in isolation.

  • The strands are not designed to be studied in any particular order.

  • The constituent parts form a whole.

  • The stakeholders remain the central focus of the course.

  • A balanced approach to both positive and negative impacts of IT developments must be adopted.
