Dalia, Nasvytiene; Agne, Brandisauskiene – Gifted Education International, 2013

Cartwright, Sally – Gifted Education International, 2013
My most vivid childhood memories of learning at school were not what the teachers taught me but what I found out for myself. I remember at junior school completing a project on childhood games and feeling important when I discovered there was a museum devoted to the topic. In Year 9 in geography a project on industry led me to interview a manager…

I will also question…

Kneller, Shmuel – Gifted Education International, 2012
This article is not comprehensive. It aims at encouraging all teachers of mathematics "to look behind the subject matter" and to probe what educational values it contains.
