The Gifted Introvert

An important topic not often covered in discussions about gifted individuals, this chat was quite active and experienced some lively debate! It was exciting to see many new faces and old friends with participants from 18 states and 5 countries.

The chat covered such questions as “Is introversion and shyness the same thing?”, “Can introversion and extroversion exist at the same time?” and “How can teachers help the introverted gifted child?” A full transcript may be found here.

PLEASE NOTE: Our next chat “Educating for Global Competence” is THURSDAY, 9/12 @5PM ET/4PM CT/22.00 UK/7.00 (ET AUS – Fri). There will be no chat the following day.
