In the new Karg Specialized Portal for Giftedness, professionals from daycares, schools and counseling can now find more knowledge about supporting gifted and talented as well as gifted.
Fortunately, the topics of supporting gifted and talented as well as gifted have received more attention in recent years. However, there are a lot of stereotypes about talented (highly) people. This includes, for example, the idea that (highly) gifted children and young adults do not need any support – after all, they must be able to use their cognitive potential to gain knowledge on their own. The Karg portal for talent starts here and answers questions from professionals in daycares and schools and advice about the gifted and talented.
For years, educational researchers have pointed out that gifted children also need support in learning and that educational equity only occurs if these children are also able to develop their potential in the best possible way through support.
The Carg Foundation wishes to help talented children and young people have the right to receive the same attention and support in their educational path that all children are entitled to. We focus particularly on children affected by social inequality and girls, because their talent often goes unrecognized. Ultimately, all children and youth benefit from comprehensive individual support. Our specialized Karg Gate talent provides essential and in-depth knowledge, which is scientifically sound and practice-oriented. In this way, we support all professionals who are committed to an education system that is suitable for talent.” Ingmar Ahl, Director of Achieving Purpose, about the new portal.
