GIFTED CHILDREN ERASMUS+ COURSE DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

Gifted education refers to the broad set of practices, pedagogy and theories used when teaching to students who have been identified as “gifted” or “talented.”

While there is no universal definition of what it means to be a student who is gifted and talented, it is mostly defined as demonstrating outstanding levels of aptitude and/or competence in one or more domains. The issues of gifted pupils have increasingly gained ground in Europe in recent decades. To maximize the potential of the gifted learner, it is essential to improve the flexibility of schools, to diversify teaching methods and techniques, to enrich the content of the curriculum and to increase the qualifications of the teachers who work with gifted learners.

If you are one of those teachers who is not limited to the traditional classroom, this course will allow you to reach a group of students who enjoy creative and academic challenges, to have an in-depth insight into the different world of the gifted child, which is essential to empower teachers to work effectively with the gifted.

This course will help you build a comprehensive range of highly practical, high-interest skills for both identifying and teaching to these children, from primary to high school.
