Insights - Gifted and Talented Education

On this INSIGHTS, Dan Boylan and guests will discuss education for gifted and talented students in Hawaii. News coverage of Hawaii's schools often places emphasis on students in need of remedial learning; students at the other end of the spectrum - those who need greater challenges in the classroom - may seem less top-of-mind. However, parents, students, educators and field professionals will convene on January 9th to focus on curriculum, research and advocacy for gifted students. Learn more about what classifies a student as "gifted," as well as ongoing efforts of the DOE, private schools and organizations to ensure that the needs of gifted students are being met.

Scheduled guests include: Robyn McMullin, Gifted and Talented Curriculum Specialist, Assets School; Rod Todorovich, Lecturer, UH College of Education and Board Member, Hawaii Gifted Association; and Anna Viggiano, Program Manager, Hawaii Department of Education's Gifted and Talented Program.

This conversation was recorded on January 12, 2012 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
