How to Find Inborn Talents in Students ? Inborn Talents are the skills which students have developed without any special training .
Talents in students are like seeds under the soil . We teachers have to work like gardener . As a great poet Rabindranath Tagore has said ‘a teacher is like a gardener’ . How a gardener waters the plant , how he nurture them . Have we seen any gardener watering to big giant trees . No . Because once a plant becomes a tree , it arrange the things of his needs on itself .
The same here .I am talking about the seeds ( Talents ) present in students . Once children have noticed their talents , they can develop it to infinitely .
To find talents in students we need to observe their behavior very carefully . We , teachers have to create favorable opportunities for strengthening their skills . We have to inspire them to show their skills publicly .
We need to remove their stage fear . Believe me if you can do this for them , they will always miss you .
Talents in students can be noticed at different occasions . By different occasions I mean different events . We should observe their behavior very carefully . We should observe them while they play .

Some children create new games . They create new games with new rules . They can develop their talents for developing new computer games .
