Education Program For Gifted Youth
The Education Program for Gifted Youth is an ongoing research project at Stanford University dedicated to developing computer-based multimedia courses in Mathematics, Physics, English, Computer Programming and other subjects, and making these available to students of high ability. EPGY endeavors to
- Provide students with advanced courses regardless of where they live.
- Do so without requiring them to leave their normal school environment.
- Individualize instruction and accommodate individual differences in student learning.
- Allow students to progress at their own paces and to accelerate their education.
EPGY strives to deepen and improve the nature of computer-based distance learning instruction. We revise our courses regularly based on the data we collect on student performance. We also evaluate new technologies as they become available and incorporate them into our courses when we feel it is appropriate to do so. In this way we continue to improve upon the quality of the educational experience we provide.
