Den världsomspännande organisationen ”The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children” (WCGTC) har nyligen givit ut ett dokument som ämnar att guida beslutstagare på nationell, regional och lokal nivå i sitt arbete för att utveckla undervisning för särskilt begåvade elever. På hemsidan kan man läsa:
The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children (WCGTC) has released a new document, “Global Principles for Professional Learning in Gifted Education,” filled with guidance for decision-makers at the local, regional, state/provincial, and national levels. The ten principles outlined provide clear guidance on professional learning that needs to occur to ensure children and young people’s talents and potential are developed to the highest levels.
This document is intended as a tool to create positive change on behalf of gifted students locally, regionally, and globally. The principles can serve to urge educational leaders and policymakers to invest in professional learning to benefit gifted education. Policymakers should adopt policies that mandate the inclusion of gifted education in teacher education programs at national, regional, and local levels.
