IB Learner Profile Trait #1 – Knowledgable

Knowledgeable:
They explore concepts, ideas and issues that have local and global significance. In so doing, they acquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines.

Being knowledgable isn’t just about knowing everything, it’s about being able to make connections and in so doing, acquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines. Being knowledgable means knowing about whats going on both locally and globally. That is why I am reading more and more. With all the events like bombings, terrorists and Donald Trump (etc.) It is so important to know what is going on around you. For example, there was an explosion at Victoria Harbour caused by a Buoy which was brought on board for repair. Asking around, nobody seems to know that this even happened. I am doing this by reading newspapers such as SCMP and by doing so, I am able to discuss with other people and make make myself not only more knowledgable, but able to create more connections.
