4.5.2 Identifying gifted students in multiple areas and targeting strategies to turn potential into performance

This parallel session will look at identifying the learning and social and emotional needs of potential gifted students in six areas (intellectual abilities, creative abilities, personal/social qualities, athletic ability, visual and performing arts, and technological abilities). It will address how to meet their needs using a range of strategies and using Google Apps for Education to track identification, provision, and performance. The resources have been based on Françoys Gagné’s Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent (2012) and look at how to identify potential and target provision to enhance performance.
