This paper aims to present a case study of how a teacher uses Web2.0 technologies to give help and support to a gifted child who is recognized as technology expertise in the school. It also gives insights about opportunities and challenges facing gifted children. The study takes a narrative inquiry approach to explore different learning phrases - exploration - planning - experimenting - mentoring and guidance - re-constructing - that the gifted child went through in the completion of the challenge. Implications and personal insights are discussed at the end of the paper.
