Questions related to Gifted Children
Hi Researchers Community!!
I am initiating a very relevant and useful discussion aiming at generating focused ideas and knowledge of how a teacher handles or should handle gifted and brilliant students in a normal class having varied differences. As it is an established fact that 21st century learners are more creative, innovative and smart comparably, reason being their having easy and granted access to technology since their early age. They are more techno-friendly in comparison to older generation teachers. Today's classes have maximum diversity that existed never. Mostly it happens in case when a teacher faces bright and gifted learners in his normal class, they are overlooked and their special educational demands are hardly met. This problem has severed in modern time, and we can no longer treat creative students with unjust. The teacher should organise well thought strategies and approches to deal and handle exceptionally good students. How do you carry out this task in your class? You need to share your experience and knowledge here for the enlightenment of other fellow researcher. Your all sort of views are most welcomed in advance. Thank you in very much anticipation.
We used in our center Virtual Worlds like Secondlife for presentation, networking, sharing and global virtual exchange. Now I would like to know how we could use Virtual Reality to help gifted children? If you have experience in one of these topics, please let me know.
My colleagues and I issue a journal "Social Phenomena". It is an nonprofit independent platform for scholars who support the open science movement and wish to share their knowledge with others. The mission of our journal is to help authors share their ideas with the Russian-speaking scientific audience. We translate all articles into Russian and publish them for free in open access. We also do not charge authors any fees because we believe that there is no place for commerce in science.
The theme of the next issue is "Giftedness: the conditions and factors". We welcome all authors from various branches of science who are interested in this topic and want to make their research open to fellow Russian scholars.

I am talking about how gifted children in learning , and are ahead of the other kids in all subjects at school should be awarded?
Because telling them that they are geniuses and thank them in front of other children might have negative effects on them and their classmates as well . Sometimes those kids have a problem of being a show-off , and have difficultlies making friends.
The human cost of what we don't know! A very important issue to raise and pursue at least now, rather than later!
"We wish for a world where ALL children can actualize their potential without fear of misdiagnosis, bullying, or isolation.
"Are misdiagnoses and mismedication really a problem? YES!"
"Professionals cannot diagnose what they do not understand"
"If we do not conduct research, we cannot increase understanding"
"I have little doubt you wish the same, but did you know that 1.4 million children in the United States alone are at risk of misdiagnosis and mismedication due to a lack of understanding about the affect being gifted has on their health and development? Did you know there is absolutely no required training for medical and mental health professionals to learn about how to recognize and respond to the physiological and psycho-emotional differences that gifted children experience each day?")
Are there any articles about gifted children, their parents concerns and their social - emotional adjustment?
For doing my graduade thesis, Iam interest with measuring gifted. Actually ,I have bought manual and instrument screening for identification of the gifted, but I can't adapt it in my country, because I must buy a research translation license agreement application with a great price (the license would be for use in research only for a particular study). I mean, I am looking for people who can work together to develop their instrument in my country. thanks very much.
Why popularity of gifted education increase at developing countries nowadays?
What should be done firstly in these countries at gifted education?
I am working on a project on the school refusing behaviors of gifted children. Do you know any theories or past research on this aspect?
