"Talent in the New Millennium": A Two-Year Research Study of Gifted Education
Keen, David
International Education Journal, v6 n2 p206-217 May 2005
"Talent in the New Millennium" was a research study into gifted education, conducted over a two-year period in 68 centres and schools in three disparate regions of New Zealand. Using questionnaires, oral interviews and sample case studies, the study drew input from educators of the gifted, from children and students identified as gifted, and from the parents and caregivers of children thus identified. Through this input, the study sought information on how giftedness popularly is defined; the demographic profile of those identified as gifted; the range of strategies used to address the needs of those identified as gifted. From the identified gifted and their parents/caregivers, the study sought evaluative comment about these strategies. The study's findings highlight areas of strength, potential and deficit in gifted education in New Zealand. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
