! “Gifted  means  you  have  abilities  to  do  stuff  others  may  not  be  able  to  do,  even  if  they  are  not   easy.    This  tree  is  growing  in  the  shade  under  a  step….that’s  not  easy.”

“As  a  gifted  learner  I  feel  that  I  am  different;     I  am  a  leader;  and  I  am  powerful!”  

“Giftedness  means  you   can  be  talented  in  some   things  but  not  at  others;   you  swing  back  and  forth   at  the  things  you  are  good   at  and  the  things  you  are   not.”

The fact that they are enormously demanding of one's time and require new ways of thinking remains a small price to pay (and is perhaps even an advantage) to be vaulted into the future. - Seymour Papert

Not surprisingly, by comparison school strikes many young people as slow, boring, and frankly out of touch. - Seymour Papert
