About the talk

資優生雖然一般具有較高的學習能力,但也需要學校和家庭提供合適的條件讓他們發揮潛能。老師不但擔當一個教育者的角色,同時亦是引領資優生盡展潛能的促進者。學校必須為這一群高能力學生提供適切的教育機會,使他們在富彈性的教學法和學習環境下,充分發揮潛能。而資優教育正是「照顧學生多樣性」的一種策略,亦是優質教育的一環。當中可以有系統、及有方向地發掘和培育資賦優異的學生,照顧他們的學習需要。

資優教育另一個重要課題正是家長教育。因為家長在子女成長路上擔當非常重要的角色,研究發現父母的教養方式影響子女的發展和將來的成就。若家長能了解資優子女的特質,協助資優子女處理情緒問題,及掌握培育資優子女的方法, 必定對子女的學習相得益彰。

透過本講座亦同時了解香港資優教育政策及有關學校資優課程的發展,藉此協助老師在學校開展資優教育課程,讓資優生成為才華盡展、成爲出類拔萃的菁英。

Though students with giftedness have had higher learning capacities, they also need school and family to work together to bring out their potentials. Teachers do not play only the role of an educator but also as a facilitator for their potentialities. Thus, schools should provide education opportunities for this group of students with higher learning capacities so that they can realise their potentials in a learning environment signified by flexible pedagogies. Gifted education is actually a strategy that helps nurture multi-facetedness of the development of students with giftedness. It could systematically help nurture them in a decent way and take good care of their learning needs.

Parent education is one of the important factors in facilitating gifted education because parents play a significant role in children’s development. Research findings demonstrate that the parenting style is a key factor affecting children’s development and their achievement in future. If parents can thoroughly understand the traits of children with giftedness, assisting them to cope with emotional problems and master well the skills of nurturing them, it will certainly strengthen their learning capacities.

In this seminar, the speaker will share with audience the policy of gifted education in Hong Kong and the curriculum development of gifted education in school so as to assist teachers in Macau to promote the curriculum of gifted education and facilitate students with giftedness to demonstrate and maximize their talents.
