Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 2015 9:46 AM

Gifted children often display their gifted talents in different areas.  Some children are gifted in science, others in math, others in music...and some show extraordinary talents in several areas. It is not the label that is placed on the child's ability, but what is done to develop and support that ability. The enrichment and challenge that is provided at home and in school can raise the demonstration of talent to high levels - however, this enrichment and challenge must be coupled with the social and emotional support that develops a life-long learner.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 2015 9:51 AM

Gifted education often talks about the twice-exceptional learner - one whose intellectual gifts are coupled and often masked by a learning disability.  There is also a phenomena of the gifted student who lives in a state of poverty.  Often trapped in a high poverty school that focuses on remediation and intervention.  Poverty schools must embrace a growth mindset about students, believing that every student can develop their gifts and talents.  They must differentiate the learning experiences that provide pathways for students to access deeper learning with complex thinking within the content.  This is a tall order for teachers who are burdened with learning gaps, behavior problems, and social issues...but with over 50% of our students living in poverty, we cannot afford to miss the development of the gifts and talents that lie buried under poverty.

Tony Guzman's curator insight, May 30, 2015 7:36 PM

This article shares the idea on how all learners are not the same, we need to strive to teach to all their styles as best possible.

Making the Most of ‘Reporting Out’ after Group Work 

Making the Most of ‘Reporting Out’ after Group Work  | Teaching & Learning Conversations | Scoop.it
Too often the debriefing aspect of a group work activity fails to deepen the learning. Here are a few ideas to engage students in more meaningful debriefs. 
Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

As instructors, we do not pay attention to debriefing activities after a group work. However, if we keep in mind the importance of reflection in actually learning from our experiences (Dewey, 1938), we recognize that the debriefing time of an active-learning group activity is where the class as a whole has a chance to reflect on their collective ideas and make meaning from the experience.


Learn how to maximize the learning with the handy tips in this article to making group work, amazing experience.

MIT Dean Takes Leave to Start New University Without Lectures or Classrooms

MIT Dean Takes Leave to Start New University Without Lectures or Classrooms | Teaching & Learning Conversations | Scoop.it
Christine Ortiz, a dean of graduate education, envisions a new kind of college, built from scratch for today’s needs and with today’s technology.
Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

Love the idea of no classroom for lectures, instead "just large, large open spaces", as well as"big centralized laboratories" where no one really has their own individual laboratory -- one integrated giant laboratory. And that goes with the research model that there would be no departments; it would just be transdisciplinary!

Building a New Research-University System

Building a New Research-University System | Teaching & Learning Conversations | Scoop.it
Universities should join forces for programs that tap their combined strengths.
Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

The author's idea of  forming 'Academic leagues' -- de facto mergers of strong programs on multiple campuses -- would enhance the capabilities of great universities and perhaps lower the cost of education is a great one. 


He urges the new campuses to reimagine and reconstruct the boundary between campuses and community, where the university would then become a museum for the interested public.
