A common characteristic of gifted students is a seemingly insatiable curiosity, and thanks to the power of the Internet,
the answer to almost any question is only a few clicks away. Today’s gifted students also have unprecedented access to
powerful tools designed for creative production and worldwide distribution. As educators how can we tap into gifted
students’ interests and purposefully guide them towards meaningful products? Together, we will explore viable options for
transforming you and your students from consumers of information to producers of new knowledge.
