The following vignette describes a way to use different types of technology with gifted students. The students' grades ranged from three through six in a school district. Gifted students used a variety of skills—leadership, creativity, performing arts, and technology—to develop a motivational video. The video was designed to be used to generate excitement for upcoming state assessment. The building administrator suggested the project, and the gifted students were engaged in almost all stages of production. From development to the final production, the students were engaged. Students used iPhones, iMovie, and a MAC computer to develop their product and produced a video to motivate fellow students.
