EGIFT Summer School 2018: July 16 – 20, 2018

In the framework of Erasmus+ project entitled Development of an Online Programme for Teachers of Gifted Students in Regular Classrooms (EGIFT) the second teacher-training event will be organised at University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Education, Centre for Research and Promotion of Giftedness.

EGIFT summer school is an integral part of the project, giving participants the opportunities to hear from experts in the field of gifted education and to devise their own application of best practice for gifted students in their classes. The interplay of three domains – underachievement, equality of access, and multiple exceptionalities – will be highlighted among different interactive sessions (i.e., lectures, workshops, and outdoor activities) during the week.

The participants will be 36 teachers and other education professionals from 8 EU countries, invited by 8 project partners:

Dublin City University,Friedrich-Alexander-Universitaet Erlangen Nurnberg, Westfaelische Wilhems-Universitaet Muenster, Anatolia Association of Post-Secondary Education and Vocational Training, Association of Hungarian Talent Support Organisations, Italian Association for Gifted and Talented Students, National Student Academy (Latvia), University of Glasgow, and Univerza v Ljubljani.

 

Tribal Mensa Nurturing Program – Annual Report 2017-2018

Sixteen years ago, we started with a MISSION to identify, nurture and empower every gifted child in India for nation-building. In year 2017-2018, we challenged ourselves to find these hidden gems from the most deprived socio-economic sections. We found gifted students amongst those who have been abandoned by society as they are children of commercial sex workers and affected by HIV AIDS. We have also shifted our focus towards nurturing and empowering gifted girls through our VAMA program. As India has a Matru-Pradhan culture, we believe that a girl should be empowered first to strengthen her community.
