    Education options for gifted: workshop

    Dear all,

    Since a few years ago, Russia joined the World Council for Gifted --- and this summer, for the first time took part in the biennial global conference aimed at experience sharing & networking.
    Leader of the local Council for Gifted, Andrey Barkin, is scheduled to deliver a workshop for parents in Moscow, in a week's time. A special focus would be on teen-age school children and their options to navigate the evolving "ecosystem".

    Registrations are open at https://www.facebook.com/events/310538142751328/ or at https://talentcourt.timepad.ru/event/549665/
    Please consider attending to discuss how to best ensure that your gifted kid would shine, for years to come.

    Warm regards + bon weekend
    Council for Gifted, a registered non-profit

    He he

    Well, Einstein (among many others) had been far from a gifted child. He, however, grew into a very clever operator - as an adult )
    So, fully agree on this point.

    Otherwise, the official concept that governs all the work with gifted - the crowd from Guardian office would likely endorse it, as it states "Every child is gifted"

    Which does not prevent parents from feeling otherwise

    Wishing everyone great if a bit rainy weekend
