Resources for gifted and high potential Primary school students (and their teachers and parents)

I’ve been doing a tiny bit of investigation about good resources for gifted and high potential primary school students, in anticipation of the new NSW Department of Education High Potential and Gifted Education Policy that comes into effect next year. Thanks to Susen Smith from UNSW, and Jodie Torrington from Macquarie University, I’m happy to share the following resources:

There are also a range of associations dedicated to Gifted and Talented education, such as:

  • AAEGT – Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented
  • Gifted NSW – NSW Association for G&T education

The following research has also piqued my interest:

  • Geake, J. (2009). The brain at school: Educational neuroscience in the classroom. McGraw-Hill Education (UK).
  • Geake, J. (2011). Position statement on motivations, methodologies, and practical implications of educational neuroscience research: fMRI studies of the neural correlates of creative intelligence. Educational philosophy and theory43(1), 43-47.
  • Gross, M. U. M. (2010). In her own write: A lifetime in gifted education. Sydney, NSW: Gifted Education Research, Resource and Information Centre, UNSW.
  • Gross, M. U. (1999). Inequity in equity: The paradox of gifted education in Australia. Australian Journal of Education43(1), 87-103.
