Abstract:

The popularity of networking in different fields of our lives is growing over the past few years, and it plays an important role also in the educational context. However, a special aspect of networking will be presented in the symposium that relates to gifted education at national and international level. Precisely, the focus of the symposium is going to be threefold: (1) to present different approaches to networking in gifted education; (2) to promote European Talent Support Network; and (3) to stress the benefits as well as the shortcomings of networking in gifted education. Characteristics of the network development will be discussed by socio-cultural contexts, triggers as starting points, strengths and experiences of difficulties, solutions and implications, as well as challenges and opportunities – the “why” and the “how” for the future.
