It’s easy for gifted kids to get bored in school because they often grasp lessons and concepts faster than their peers. This can cause some of them to tune out, and prevent them from reaching their full potential. 

But there’s good news. Today’s technology has spawned new learning tools called adaptive apps that can help learners stay engaged and challenged. 

We turn the tables in this episode, with Emmy Award-winning journalist and talk show host Anna Davlantes interviewing our Gifted Minds’ show host, MacKenzie Price, about what exactly adaptive apps are, and how they can help gifted kids take control of their own learning.

Listen now to hear about:

  • How adaptive apps work [04:51], and the learning science behind them [06:56];
  • How kids feel about adaptive apps—including video clips of students sharing their experiences [08:20];
  • The importance of embracing learning technology to support your child’s future [11:12]; and
  • How to get started with adaptive apps, and a few of MacKenzie’s favorites for advanced learners [14:34].
