Balanced research and practice
According to Kettler and Taliaferro (2022) personalized learning is a pedagogical approach that focuses on pupils' needs, interests, and talents. The Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) for gifted children is an educational tool that favors the application of personalized teaching.
In our study we collected the responses of 61 Italian teachers who filled out an online questionnaire, after having participated in at least one training meeting on PLP for gifted children. The goals of the research were: a) to collect teachers' perceptions of PLP for gifted children; b) to gather teacher’s ideas to create a national PLP model.
The results show that the PLP is considered useful by teachers to implement inclusive teaching, share objectives and methods with colleagues, document activities. The new PLP model demonstrates the need for teachers to balance the cognitive traits, social skills, talents, involving parents. The Italian PLP model will be presented in digital format.
