    AAGC CONFERENCE 2020

    AAGC is pleased to announce the 2020 annual conference, Gifted 2020: Envisioning the Possibilities, on October 15-16, 2020.  With the many, varied ways schools are educating students, AAGC has envisioned a possibility by moving the conference to the virtual environment.  We have confirmed two exciting keynote speakers: Dr. Del Siegle from the University of Connecticut and Director of the National Center for Research on Gifted Education, and Lisa Yee, award winning author of the Millicent Min, Girl Genius novel.

    In addition, we will have a variety of concurrent sessions addressing topics including Instructional Technology, Instructional Resources, Instructional Practice, Identification and Social/Emotional Support.

    Join us for session breaks to stretch or laugh, lunch box sessions and a late afternoon creativity session. Grab your swag bag for digital items such as a binder cover, digital stickers, Google Slides templates, and so much more! Purchase your AAGC swag (t-shirts, mugs, bags, and masks) at the Bonfire store.
