Children in Their Talents, a Basic Right
Luk Dewulf • TEDxWassenaar
It is the basic right of each child to be seen IN their talent. We need to create educational environments that enable each child to be in their talent. And help people to give words to children for their talent when they are in their talent. What is talent? A definition in four layers. There is only talent when it is seen by others. There are two issues when one talks about educational environments: - the difference between normal and abnormal - educational environments only match with some talents We started an international movement of talent whisperers who help children discover their talents (Belgium, the Netherlands, Curacao, Bonaire and South Afrika). Imagine a world where each child is seen in their talent. Finding a context to bring their talent to action. Not every child will become a star, but every child can shine.
