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 theadvantages 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 ITwithin social contexts.

Strand 1: Social and ethical significance
The widespread use of information technology (IT) raises questions about the social and ethicalconsiderations that shape the world today. IB students must become familiar with all the social impacts andethical considerations described in this section. IB teachers should introduce them as appropriate, using theintegrated approach illustrated in the ITGS triangle. In this way, students can discuss social impacts andethical considerations that are raised when IT systems are used in a range of scenarios. The use of IT is likelyto bring both advantages and disadvantages, and students should be able to discuss the effects of IT in acritical way as well as evaluating possible solutions. It is important that examples are drawn from the local,national and global level from recently published articles. Some examples of scenarios for consideration arelisted later in this section.Analysing social impacts and ethical considerationsThroughout the course, students must analyse and evaluate the social impacts of IT on individuals andsociety, and consider the ethical issues raised by these impacts.Social impacts and ethical considerations need to be analysed from both a local and a global perspective,recognizing that attitudes and opinions are diverse within and between different cultures.
