#gtchat Showcase of TAGT ’12 Speakers: Dr. Carolyn Coil
On Friday, October 5th, #gtchat hosted the first in a series of chats with speakers at the upcoming TAGT ’12 Conference in Dallas, TX this November 28th through the 30th which will include both educators and parents. Participants at chat were from 13 states and 4 countries.
Dr. Carolyn Coil was our guest and she talked about two presentations she will be giving at the conference ~ “21st Century Self-Management Skills for Gifted Students” and “Advanced Activities/Assessments Focusing on Rigor, Higher-Level Thinking & Problem Solving”. Carolyn’s remarks were well received by chat participants with many retweets throughout the session. Brian Housand, a former student of Carolyn’s and a speaker at the TAGT Conference, was present and added many valuable comments as well.
