Identifying Students with Gifts and Talents in Technology. Technology

Technology expertise often occurs in two types of technology activities. One area of expertise is computer programming and another is expertise as a technology consumer using hardware and software. In addition to demonstrating prowess, some students tend to exhibit passion toward one or both of these activities. Students who excel in either could be considered technologically gifted. The purpose of this column is to describe the second type of student, the one who demonstrates expertise using technology hardware and software. These students may or may not be able to program computers, but they are certainly able to apply technology in effective and creative ways. Their interests and skills may not be limited to computers. They often focus on other technologies such as audio and video equipment. When a new piece of technology is introduced into the classroom, these are the students who, cannot wait to experiment with it. They have a high interest in technology and spend much of their free time developing their technology skills. Technologically gifted students can usually be identified by the technology products they produce, the way they assist others with technology, and the technology-related questions they ask. One possible method to identify them is through a rating scale.
