dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to explore and evaluate current and projected usage of technology in the secondary gifted and talented classroom curriculum. This study examined the acceptance levels of computer integration and gauged a level of where and how computer technology is being integrated into the gifted and talented classroom. The data for this study was manifested through surveys directed toward teachers of gifted and talented students. The results of the study concluded that while the majority of teachers accepted that technology usage can benefit their gifted and talented students’ learning, the means and availability of computer technology was not always accessible. It was additionally discovered that teachers wanted and were open to learning sophisticated software in order to help their students express ideas, problem solve, research and create through computer technology.
