It has been a most unusual year for us all; however gifted students returning to school after a period of remote learning are experiencing a range of challenges that are related to who they are and how they learn.
How do parents and educators appropriately support gifted students to positively transition from a remote learning environment to a school setting?
How can we ensure that gifted students' learning and psycho-social needs are adequately addressed at this time?
How might adults manage the fluctuating demands of our society's 'new normal' while safeguarding students' emotional well-being and ensuring that opportunities available for gifted students are responsive to their learning needs?
Join us via ZOOM to listen to Michele Juratowitch as she provides some guidance on this topical issue. Please see Michele's bio below. When you register for this FREE event, a ZOOM link will be provided to you via email, an hour before the event.
Understanding the psychosocial characteristics of gifted youth is critical if we are to know how to support the emotional and social needs of gifted students while simultaneously providing optimal intellectual and academic challenges – whether at home or at school. Presented by Michele Juratowitch
Brisbane West Branch of the QAGTC invites you to attend an event focused on giftedness in early childhood (8 years and under). Experienced educators will form a panel to review issues related to young gifted children.
We all recognize the word, the look and the frustration but do we really understand what ‘boredom’ means or know how to respond to the phase “It’s boring!” when expressed by students. Parents, who are concerned about their child receiving adequate academic challenge, may be perceived as an affront by teachers who work hard to provide stimulating lessons for students. Is learning to deal with boredom an expected life skill or does the experience of boredom result in cognitive difficulties, academic underachievement and psychological difficulties?
