Gifted and talented people are often poorly supported in education. They have their own special needs, as do others. Some have need of more taxing challenges in learning, and others of opportunities for greater exploration. Some say that the most disruptive students are often the most gifted. How could greater understanding of personalised learning around gifted and talented help us understand how to support all students better? How might addressing gifted and talented learning lead to less disruption and more widely spread classroom support? How should we define the gifts and talents that should be nurtured?
