The Sparkle Project
In this video, the members of the Educational Insights Group talk about their latest research project, The Sparkle Project. They tell about how and when they experience sparkling moments in their jobs as teacher educators, and they invite teachers to join their research project at www.sparkleproject.net.
The Sparkle Project aims to get a better understanding of what makes teachers sparkle in their jobs? We want to know what similarities and differences there are regarding the motivational factors for their profession between teachers involved with gifted learners and teachers who are not involved with gifted learners or those who may not know they are involved with gifted learners. As this research is undertaken in an international context (in different countries), we would like to determine similarities and differences between teachers worldwide. Understanding what makes teachers thrive in their jobs helps us shape the best professional context possible for teachers.
