Libby Purves presents this week's edition of the Learning Curve.
Personalised Learning
A new report was released recently called 2020 Vision focusing on personalised learning. What is meant by personalised learning and is it a feasible proposition for schools?
In Discussion with Libby is Professor Jim Campbell, Professor of Education at the University of Warwick; Dr Dennis Hayes, head of the Centre for Professional learning, Canterbury Christ Christ University and Richard Westergreen-Thorne, head teacher of Barnwell School Stevenage.

Gifted and Talented

In the U.S. provision for gifted and talented children within the public school system has a 20 year history.  Teachers can choose to train as specialist teachers for the gifted and talented programme. Reporter Kate Weidmann brings the Learning Curve a piece from Sarah Smith Elementary School in Atlanta, Georgia.

CareerWise: Gifted and Talented, which examines how effective the Gifted and Talented programme is in the UK, and the challenges and rewards for teachers is being broadcast on Teachers’ TV from today.

The Big Schools’ Birdwatch
School children are being urged to spend their time gazing out of the classroom window - with the blessing of their teacher - to take part in the survey. Running from 22 January to the 2 February, it encourages children and their teachers to look out for and count the birds that share their school environment. We talk to Ros Patching the RSPB Big Schools' Birdwatch project manager and participating teacher Carol Champion from Tuckwood Primary School in Norwich.
