VISION magazine is published twice a year, and is Australia’s only magazine written for families and educators of children with gifted and talented potential. In circulation since 1985, VISION magazine boasts strong editorial content, with articles that connect research and policy to families and educators in Australia and beyond. It includes insights into the lived experiences of children and families and provides research-based tools and strategies to support the various developmental and educational needs of children. Articles are written by educators, parents, specialists, and children. VAGTC welcomes contributions from the community.

The 2018, Vol 29 (No.1) issue is one we are infinitely proud of. On the back of our successful one-day conference on Models of Talent Development, we asked for contributions that focused on unpacking three models presented: Gagné’s DMGT2.0 and IMTD, Ziegler’s Actiotope Model, and Renzulli’s Schoolwide Enrichment Model. The articles in this issue not only review the models from the Conference, but also provides an insight into the philosophy, the theory and the practical approaches in each model. We are honored to publish ‘from the horse’s mouths’, and proud to have their work as contributions to VISION. Thank you to the following:
We thank all of our volunteer contributors for yet another excellent issue.
