Abstract:One of the most important aspect in the education for high ability (or gifted) students is motivation. Generally, some great capabilities can be wasted if the student does not find a sense in what he/she is doing, especially in those students. Based on that, a co-creation model was designed as response of a research about the high ability students’ characteristics, pedagogical models and co-creation processes. The objective of this designed model is to include the students in the creation of their own learning material awakening the interest in their educational process. This paper describes a validation of this co-creation model through some experiences with high ability students applying the process. The aim of the validation is to see if the co-creation model responds to the design guidelines and to the high ability students’ expectations, and if it really helps to these students in their motivation. Therefore, the validation of the process focuses on three aspects: the behaviour of the process, the students’ response about the process (as individual and as group) and the students´ motivation.
