Dear readers, I had the pleasure of meeting the president of the Filo di Seta Association, Professor Anna Galassetti, about a year ago. The impression was excellent from the beginning. In particular, I was struck by its simplicity and at the same time professionalism with which I presented the splendid initiatives of her Swiss association.

“Filo di seta” is responsible for disseminating the scientific knowledge and good practices of gifted & talented education, offering a network of experts with different skills: psychological, clinical and educational. The recipients of their various services are: parents, teachers and psychologists. For more info: Filo di Seta

I highly recommend to participate in their theme nights that will take place in the coming months. SEE HERE

Dr. Martina Brazzolotto will conduct a webinar on “The paradigms of Gifted Child and Differentiation”, Sunday, February 28, 2021 from 16:00 to 17:30 (CET).

The different visions and interpretations of giftedness and high cognitive potential derive from the various assumptions and perspectives. According to internationally renowned scholars Dai and Chen (2013), all theories, methods of identification and didactic strategies could be placed in three different paradigms; the discussion will focus, in particular, on two of them.

The meeting is aimed at teachers, parents, educators interested in broadening the perspectives on Gifted Education, with the aim of being more aware of their vision and understanding how it influences the education and education of gifted child/ student.

Please communicate your membership by 25 February, writing to
