Schroth, Stephen T.; Daniels, Janese; McCormick, Kimberly
Parenting for High Potential, v8 n1 p15-17 Mar 2019
Parents recognize that most children today are keenly interested in technology and often prefer working in ways that use a variety of media and other forms of communication that are different than the way many children learned even a decade before. Many young learners look for ways to include technology in all aspects of their learning, ranging from embryonic thinking about a project, to information gathering, communicating ideas with others, giving form to ideas, refining and polishing initial efforts, and sharing a final product with others. When working with gifted children, listening to what they say--and seeing how they express themselves--often provides clues to which children will benefit through increased exposure to technology. When gifted children demonstrate an attraction to or a love of technology, parents may wish to investigate a series of such tools, apps, or programs that can be used to enhance their child's education, both inside and outside of school settings. This article presents a variety of resources that permit parents and teachers to assist gifted children in exploring technology in authentic and meaningful ways.
