Content and Citation analysis was used in this study to investigate documents related to technology usage in gifted child researches, which were indexed in the Web of Science. “Technology” and “gifted” (high abilities) related keywords were used jointly in the search for documents. There was a total of 240 documents judged to be relevant to the field of technology usage in gifted child education and were analyzed. However, as a result of individual review of the sources, 40 documents that were not relevant for the purpose of the research were excluded from the scope of the re-search. As a result of this study, it can be seen that the documents and the number of citations related to the technology usage in gifted child education field has been continuously increasing since 2005. It is recommended that a combination of citation analysis and other types of analyses should be used in future research studies.
