How well do we understand our gifted ākonga in a 21st century environment, and what can we do to help create the engagement that leads to connected learning? We will look at some of the exciting Anthropological and Sociological analysis that is going on worldwide, and identify a few of the relevant theories for our G&T students.
1) Ambient Virtual Co-Presence
3) Dunbar’s Number
4) Parasocial Relationships
5) World of Awareness
6) Ambient Awareness
7) Aggregate Phenomenon
8) Bonding and Bridging Social Capital
Mark will then show us seven 21st century strategies to connect with G&T students, and help foster their creativity to the next level.
