Educator Keynote: The Other Goal of Gifted Education: Promoting Emotional Development And Social Responsibility through The Use Of Co-Cognitive Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The overall goal of gifted education is to increase the world’s reservoir of creative and productive people; however, we also want to prepare young people to be committed to making the world a better place.  This presentation will briefly review the conception of giftedness and the pedagogical approaches underlying the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, with an emphasis on a broadened view of human potential. The major focus will be on the ways we can prepare young people to develop an empathic value system and commitment to using their talents to make beneficial changes in society.  The relationship between creativity and task commitment, combined with the primary executive functions necessary for carrying out socially active projects, will be illustrated through case studies that highlight the co-cognitive characteristics necessary for social change and creative productivity.
