My TED story

I'm a big fan of Caine's Arcade. It is where I got the idea about TED. When I looked it up, I got really excited since all the videos here are worth watching! PLUS, I get to download them FOR FREE! For a teacher like me, sites like TED is very helpful -- not just in teaching but also in boosting our morale as educators. Watching the speakers talk so persuasively can give you nothing but inspiration and motivation. I LOVE TED! :) I HOPE TO BE A SPEAKER HERE (Hehe! Please give this 3rd world country a chance to speak in front of the entire world) THANKS TED!

Gifted kids bullied or bullies?
Bob, you gave me a skip beat! This is very relevant! Thank you for the honesty :) That is true! Having gifted kids around is very convenient for teachers (guilty here!) and we do not realize that the down side is placed on their shoulders! I am speechless as I read your insight! Thank you very much!! :')

Gifted kids bullied or bullies?
NOTE: I would appreciate if you would take time to read the description of this thread. I am looking for valuable insights from people who have experiences of GTs who are bullied/bullying. Definitely, bullying is a worldwide issue. We're dealing with it. My area focuses on the GTs thus the question is stated that way. Other researches from the team are working on other forms of bullying. This is not about whose issue is bullying. I am trying to track the instances of bullying that concerns the GTs because, again, that is my area. I hope that is clear. Thanks for those who took their time to share their experiences

I know :) We'll get there George. If we look at bullying as one big picture, it tends to be very overwhelming :) So we're doing it one sector at a time. Others are working on those who are not gifted. My part is that of the GTs :)
