The next guest speaker is Leslie Graves on 27th August, 2011.
Imagine being able to attend an international meeting with leaders in the field of gifted education as guest
speaker and having a possibility to share knowledge and experience with people who have the same interest
in this field around the world without cost and without having to travel. Yes, this brilliant and exciting idea is
possible since The Bavarian Center for Gifted and Talented Children have been holding monthly global virtual
meeting for gifted and education in Secondlife since August 2010.
The concept for these meetings was created by Roya Klingner, head and founder of the Bavarian Center for
Gifted and Talented Children. The event is open for everyone and free of charge. What you only have to do
is register in Second Life (SL), a virtual world where its users enable to interact (meet, socialize, participate in
individual and group activities, etc) with each other, as a place for the virtual meeting.
