There is a wealth of information available online for the Gifted and Talented students, parents and educators; however, finding the resources can be a daunting task. In the following sections, we have gathered a list of resources to help you connect with others in the gifted community.
IGGY, an International Organization for Gifted Children
IGGY is an international, social and educational network for gifted children ages 13-18 created by the UK’s University of Warwick. It gives members access to interactive educational resources and allows them to work with top academics, student mentors and other gifted young people around the world to exchange ideas, debate, and learn and explore in a safe environment. IGGY focuses on providing in-depth content in the core subjects of Math, English, Science, History, Politics and Life Skills.
