by Janice Dinel and Lori Vigfusson
Janice Dinelhas been a teacher at New Horizons School since 2001. In that time, she has taught a variety of grade levels and different courses. Her love for technology drives her to seek learning opportunities for her students that enhance their skill sets. Throughout her 16 years of experience with gifted learners, she has come to understand their unique needs. She strives to incorporate a more project-based learning approach in her teaching as a way to engage and push gifted learners to be creative problem solvers in a collaborative environment. This action research project was borne out of this need to provide this approach, but yet preserve the unique learning needs of each student.
