The Inclusion of Multiple Exceptional Gifted Students in Talent Development Programmes: Interaction Synthesis of Both Provision Form and Content
Gyarmathy, Éva; Senior, John
Gifted Education International, v34 n1 p47-63 Jan 2018
Models of giftedness in the 21st century tend to describe talent as a social construct. Research now indicates that certain talented populations that are composed of multiple exceptional individuals are excluded from talent development programmes. Recognizing how well the environment best fits individual needs at particular key developmental moments, shifts the emphases of focus regarding gifted education significantly. The provision for, and the development of, multiple exceptional gifted individuals from this perspective can engender far greater possibilities than previously imagined earlier. In Hungary, we started to create innovative networks for the encouragement and the development of effective, inclusive provision. The networks have however replicated many of the problems of the former provision for talented individuals and groups. The further development of content and appropriate forms of programmes need to be synchronized through networks of innovative provision and evaluation. The proposed complex provision is suggested as a solution for the new forms of talent development that are open to the multiple exceptional gifted population regardless of the populations' needs being understood, and perceived by, different audiences as being variously extreme, diverse and novel. A system utilizing key aspects of Bloom's taxonomy, Renzulli's enrichment triad and Gardner's multiple intelligences is proposed.
