School Snaps: AISM Represented at World Conference for Gifted Education

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

AISM’s Director of Curriculum and Innovation, Kylie Booker, is a highly regarded specialist in the rapidly evolving field of gifted education. She has over 25 years’ teaching experience and leads the Gifted and Talented program at AISM, supporting the teachers to provide opportunities for these students to reach their potential.

Recently, Kylie was invited to present at the 22nd World Council for Gifted and Talented Children (WCGTC) Biennial World Conference in Sydney, Australia. The four-day event brought together more than 600 participants from around the world to discuss, exchange, and debate ideas in gifted education. Kylie’s conference presentation featured a narrative journey of a profoundly gifted student in mainstream schooling. The presentation explored the student’s story to produce new knowledge to enhance how teachers engage with profoundly gifted children in education. This research is due to be published later in 2017 as part of Kylie’s completion of her Doctorate Study in Leadership and Management at Flinders University, Australia.
