Gifted Education in the Context of Comparative International Education

Gifted Education is viewed as an integral part of education in the U.S. Yet there are variances in terms of the construct of giftedness and the perceived need for education of the gifted in other countries of the world. In the field of Comparative and International Education, there is little reference to Gifted Education. This presentation shares comparative data related to Gifted and Comparative & International Education. and suggests how a bridge of global awareness might be developed across these two domains through transnational collaboration and research related to Gifted Education.
