Community for Extending Learning Online

Welcome to the CELO newsletter

Welcome to this first edition of the CELO newsletter. CELO is the Community for Extended Learning Online: a community of teachers working with gifted and highly able students in Tasmania, Australia. This fortnightly newsletter will be used to keep us up to date with new resources, information and research in the area of gifted education.

Online- Fronter classroom Illuminate session.

We will be featuring a teacher from the CELO Online program run by the eSchool every 3 weeks to get the 'inside story' on their online classroom and how it works with gifted students. You can ask questions and get some good practical advice from the teachers partnering with you to meet your gifted student's needs.
