Event Details

Join educators from across the globe as we learn about innovative approaches to gifted education for indigenous students. In the morning, there will be presentations and panel discussion by the federal and Hawaiʻi state gifted education program managers and nationally well-known scholars in gifted education. Afternoon sessions will focus on a math intervention program for indigenous students having potential in math. The intervention model and experimental study findings will be shared, and in-person participants will join hands on activities. Throughout the symposium, participants will actively reflect on their perception of gifted students and education, and ways to identify and serve underrepresented groups of students having potential.


Learning Outcomes

• Learn about underrepresented groups of students in gifted education and innovative approaches to serve the students.
