3.4.2 Identifying the gifted learner in a rural context

This presentation will examine the cognitive and affective benefits for parents and educators of the gifted, which was achieved by an inspiring professional learning joint venture, funded by the Victorian Government and delivered by the VAGTC. Rural living challenges examined include peer support, professional learning, and uncertainty about a child's developmental behaviours. Participants will discuss the cognitive and affective benefits expressed by the seminar participants, via pre and post test results, as a direct outcome of the Gifted and Talented Identification seminars in rural towns in Victoria.
