Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The challenges of meeting the needs of gifted and talented children attract growing attention in the fields of educational psychology, curriculum instruction and special education. Focusing on the various research and policy issues, this article highlights the complexity of gifted and talented education by illustrating the multidimensional development and changing notions of giftedness in selected education systems in the Asia-Pacific region. Some practices and research work on gifted and talented education in the sub-regions and countries of China, including mainland China and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (hereafter Hong Kong), Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand are discussed for global sharing generally and for sharing within the Asia-Pacific region in particular.
