Balanced research and practice
The multiple talent development tool mBET was developed to bring children, their teachers and their parents into a conversation about talent and its support. In most cases, the trained mBET users are teachers themselves, who take on the role of facilitators. The use of mBET as a tool for structured observation in gifted and talented education is a door opener for constructive discussion about individual interests, potentials and strengths.
However, the target group is restricted: Questions addressed to elementary school children would have to be formulated differently for secondary school children.
The questionnaire has now been revised for teenagers (up to about grade 7). How does this affect parent and teacher questionnaires? What scientific principles are changing? For which types of schools is such a tool suitable?The procedure and first results will be presented. An exchange of experiences with experienced mBET users is explicitly desired!
