As funding declines, gifted students spend more time in regular education classrooms and resources for professional development are limited, creating a need for quality gifted training to large numbers of classroom teachers. The Gifted Education Seminar provides 45 hours of training statewide to enable regular education teachers to identify and differentiate for gifted students. Session attendees view a demonstration of this computer-assisted interactive training delivered via a USB drive. Participants learn the process of developing and implementing this training with multiple delivery options (face to face, interactive activity and self-directed) and how to develop similar training in their own setting.
