How can technology facilitate and enhance creative opportunities for students who are gifted in technology rich or one-to-one classroom environments? In this session we draw on research on creativity and growth mindset to discuss conditions conducive to fostering creativity in the classroom. We present innovative uses of technology to promote creative thinking among gifted students and to facilitate collaborative problem solving among gifted students and their peers in the classroom, across classrooms, and around the world.
