Exploring New Family Enrichment Activities
Participants from 13 states and 5 countries joined #gtchat to discuss family enrichment activities. Manynew faces and some old friends shared links to some amazing activities. A new acronym was coined during the chat, TTFN – made famous by Tigger of Winnie-the-Pooh – now stands for (at least during #gtchat) Thank Twitter it’s Friday Night (thanks to Jack Hanford).
Some of the ideas shared included geocaching, traveling, touring local ethnic food stores and eateries, and virtual tours via Google street view and underwater view. For a more extensive review of this chat, please go to our page on TAGT’s website for the transcript which is posted Monday mornings following each chat.
