Quote of The Day

The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.

-Herbert Spencer

When a student truly learns something, they are able to take that knowledge and use it in a real-world situation. When a gifted student seems bored or unresponsive, one way to try and engage them is to show them how to act on their knowledge. Similar to Bloom’s Taxonomy, this quote is representative of gifted education. What sets gifted students apart is their ability to take knowledge and act on it.
