“As Advanced Academic Coordinator, I simply shared the opportunity via email through GT Specialists who electronically shared with teachers. The system managed itself, or so it seemed, from my vantage point! Just LOVED it! Thanks again for the opportunity!”
“I have had reservations about other on-line courses but not about these because they come from a trusted source…they know GT. I also hesitated because I want participants to be interactive with each other. Now, all of my concerns have been addressed.”

TEACHERS WILL THANK YOU FOR OFFERING GT IGNITE AS AN
ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL TRAINING
Empower them with flexibility to learn on their terms, at their own pace
“The course about Young Gifted was excellent. I showed to ALL teachers – K-12 because the information about the different types of GT was so powerful at all levels and it reinforced with all my GT teachers WHY our district strongly believes we need to identify early.
Can be done at own time, own pace, choice of location. Can start and stop as many times as you need to complete it.
Has built-in reflection and testing so participants can think about, share, read others’ sharings and review what they missed.
Provides me a way to get all of us on the same page for further discussions/reflections/next steps in the limited time I have for trainings.”
