In this Special Issue, we invite contributors to address the current challenges and opportunities in identifying and supporting gifted students in schools and early childhood education (ECE) settings. We take a holistic approach to education and invite papers that focus on cognitive, emotional, social, and moral domains concerning giftedness and talents. Countries differ in their educational provisions for gifted students, and we need to learn from each other on how to best meet the needs of gifted students. We welcome papers from different parts of the world to present their practices and approaches in teaching gifted students. We also need more research regarding teachers’ values, beliefs, and attitudes that influence their pedagogical decisions with high-achieving students and talent development. Inclusive education presents challenges on how to identify different gifts and talents and how to meet the needs of different learners in the same classroom. We welcome papers regarding inclusive education and the ways teachers can differentiate teaching in different subjects for gifted students or in transdisciplinary, holistic education. We also invite papers that consider acceleration and grouping that help gifted students to advance faster in their learning. Case studies concerning special programs and enrichment opportunities are also very suitable for the scope of this Special Issue.
We invite contributors to address the current challenges and opportunities in identifying and supporting gifted students in school and ECE in international contexts. The articles can be theoretical or empirical as long as they provide research-based knowledge to improve the teaching of gifted students globally.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
