Introduction to Gifted Education Course

Hi everyone,

This summer I took part in an Introduction to Gifted Education Course at Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. It has been a wonderful experience and I would love to share some of what I have learned with you.

Before this course, I had heard of Glogster, but never really used it. One of my favorite things is that it has an extension called Edu Glogster that is safe for student use. It would be awesome for students to complete a Glogster instead of the traditional poster. I love that you can add multimedia, such as music, videos, hyperlinks, graphics, and more! It is a great resource to use in your classroom. Also, if you create an educator page, you can have twenty student accounts link to your home page for free! By paying a yearly subscription that number jumps to 500 students! Check this out!

Below are two links to my Edu.Glogster pages that I completed during this course. One is related to curriculum and ways to best benefit gifted students, the second is effective program options for gifted education, and the other is about a book that I found helpful for middle school gifted learners.

Curriculum Options for Gifted Learners
Program Options for Gifted Education in Schools
101 Success Secrets for Gifted Students

This course has also sparked my interest in becoming a gifted education specialist. If you know of anyone or have any suggestions, please let me know! I would love to hear from you!
