SCHOOL GIFTEDNESS AND CORRELATIONS WITH MOTOR AND SPORTS ACTIVITIES

Antonio Ascione, Domenico Tafuri

Abstract


Continuous socio-cultural progress imposes the need to respond, from a pedagogical-educational point of view, to the different abilities and needs of students at school (Turemuratova, Minajov, Bekniyazova, 2023). School giftedness, namely the presence of above-average intellectual and creative abilities, represents a challenge and an opportunity for contemporary educational systems. This study was conducted in partnership with two Comprehensive Institutes involving ten primary school sections for a total of 300 pupils and explores the correlations between school surplus endowment and students' participation in motor and sports activities, with the aim of identifying potential benefits and challenges.
