  • Educators’ Discussion and Support Groups

    Educators’ Discussion and Support Groups’ purpose in Miona’s Talk Room is to gather educators to speak up about their professional experiences and teaching gifted, talented, & 2e twice exceptional.  Besides parents, educators as well as the other professionals have to be well informed about importance of social and emotional competencies – SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) and social-emotional specificities of gifted, talented, and 2e. These professional competencies could bring great change in the education system for every single child. At present, teachers focus mostly on the academic needs of their students, developing an advanced curriculum in a special program or ensuring, even this is not common practice, that curriculum and instruction are differentiated for gifted students in classrooms.
    Much less attention has been given to (gifted) students’ social and emotional development. Their effort as educators can have more impact if they pay extra attention to social and emotional development of all children. It will particularly be beneficial for gifted children if educators understand their inner and developmental complexities. They have a chance to learn more about it in Miona’s Talk Room’s Guided Discussion Groups for Educators, Educator2 Educator Discussion Group or Book Study Service for Professional and Educators. This is the way to create a community of educators interested in learning about social-emotional needs of all children with extra focus on gifted, talented and 2e twice-exceptional.
