Understanding the Different Ways Gifted Students Learn

Understanding the Different Ways Gifted Students Learn
by

Over time, the question of identifying gifted students and understanding the different ways in which they learn has changed. The process of identifying gifted students has widened to include testing a child for symptoms of particular disabilities in addition to their IQ. However, understanding how a gifted child learns is crucial to their learning experience and academic success. Understanding how gifted students learn differently from their peers could prove helpful in the process of identifying gifted students. Here are 5 ways gifted students learn differently:

  1. Gifted children learn new material at a faster pace.
  2. Gifted and talented students have a stronger ability to remember new knowledge.
  3. They can think in abstract or complex ways.
  4. Gifted learners can place a high level of focus on certain topics and grow very passionate over them.
  5. They can receive many stimuli at once meaning they can concentrate on a specific task while still knowing what is happening around them.
