On Tuesday March 17th, 2015 at 4pm, Melbourne, Australia time I gave a presentation for Anne Mirtschin’s Tech talk Tuesdays webinar series about the persona dolls and profiles of the gifted and talented.
It was the first webinar in the 2015 series and coincided with Gifted Awareness week http://www.aaegt.net.au/?page_id=1170 and also with Cultural Diversity week in Victoria
Information about the session can be found on the Australia e-Series blog at http://techtalktuesdays.global2.vic.edu.au/2015/03/04/personas-profiles-and-portraits-of-giftedness/
About this session: Tech Talk Tuesday will start the year off celebrating Gifted Awareness Week with guest presenter Jo Freitag. This session will discuss “Personas, profiles and portraits of giftedness”: using personal descriptions/narratives to illustrate profiles of the gifted and talented and understand their particular needs. All students deserve an excellent education Gifted students need an education which is at an appropriate level, pace, depth and breadth.
Jo will use persona dolls and personal descriptions/narratives to illustrate profiles of the gifted that can aid in building an understanding of the needs of gifted students and a variety of methods for addressing their strengths and challenges. Please join us for this fascinating session.

This webinar was similar to the one I presented for OZeLive but had some extra content added https://jofreitag.wordpress.com/2015/03/16/ozelive-webinar/
Because of the additions it was not possible to finish the presentation in the hour and we decided to give a follow up webinar to be held 2 June 2015.
