Exceptional Minds in the 21st Century with Marc Smolowitz

We are wrapping up our series on understanding giftedness and what it all means! This inspiring talk continues our quest into the evolution of our culture and society’s idea of neurodiverse learners! Join us as Marc Smolowitz, award winning director, dives in and gives his unique perspective on this theme. He shares all about his newest project, the G word, an unforgettable documentary that unravels the complex challenges of defining and meeting the needs of high intelligence in the 21st century.

The continuum of intelligence has been up & down…we thought what if we turned it sideways so we are all on the same plane?

The G word is a moving and enlightening film that features different lives and takes on the educational experience. In addition to exploring themes in education, giftedness, and intelligence, equity and justice are also explored.

Who gets to be gifted in America and why?
