In an interconnected and global society that is rapidly changing, it becomes imperative to equip students with the required tacit life skills to navigate the challenges of the modern world. The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a highly regarded educational system providing a holistic and interdisciplinary approach that nurtures its students as global citizens with a broad cultural perspective. Nevertheless, although the IB learning mode is inquiry-based and project-based, which aids students' tacit knowledge construction, this field receives relatively little investigation. This study expands on the research of Venkatesh's (2021) study on university design students to study the tacit knowledge construction of secondary school IB students in Hong Kong. The focus is on the role of social interactions in the classroom that facilitates its construction. A mixed-method approach was designed for data collection and analysis. The study's outcomes contribute towards developing a framework and suggest teaching strategies for effective tacit knowledge construction, thereby improving their understanding of how tacit knowledge is constructed through active learning.
