Global education and gifted education share a common goal. The aim of both is to prepare learners to gain the knowledge and skills to successfully interact to the best of their ability in an increasingly globalized society. While providing an educational framework with a global perspective is beneficial for all students, it can provide a framework for developing an effective curriculum that meets the distinctive needs of gifted learners. A comparison between global education and gifted education reveals commonalities. They share educational, philosophical, and, psychological connections and when addressed within the framework of curriculum development, each compliments the other. When curriculum and educational strategies acknowledge this relationship, all students are provided an opportunity to reach their individual potential and gain the competencies to become effective global citizens.
