Since August 2010, together with my husband Klaus E. Klingner, we organised the Global Virtual Meeting for Gifted Education in Second Life.
About the Event:
Exploring the possibilities of Gifted Education in Second Life The purpose of the conference is to cultivate a global virtual meeting, sharing knowledge and experience about gifted education for students, educators, teachers and parents. The concept for these meetings was created by me, Roya Klingner, head and founder of the Global Center for Gifted and Talented Children.
The event is open for everyone free of charge.
