#gtchat Goes to TAGT ’12

@gtchatmod on Twitter (aka Lisa Conrad) will be attending the TAGT’s Annual Conference in Dallas, November 28 – 30, 2012 and TAGT’s Parent Conference on November 30th.

Lisa will be presenting at both conferences. You can hear her on Thursday @4PM to 5PM, “Why You Should #gtchat on Twitter” (Room: Pearl 4); on Friday @ 7:45AM to 8:45 AM, “Twitter Chat 101” (Room: Pearl 4); and again on Friday @1:40PM to 2:30PM, “Collaboration, Not Confrontation: Parents and Teachers Working Together” (Parents’ Conference, Room: Austin 3).

On Friday, November 30th, #gtchat will be live from the Social Connections Area in the Exhibit Hall. It will begin @10:30AM CT for conference attendees (although everyone is invited online) and from 11AM to Noon CT [Find your time here. ] on Twitter. Our topic will be, “Building Bridges with #gtchat”. Following chat, there will be a 40 minute Tweet-Up for those at the conference.

Chat participants on Twitter are invited to tweet about how they have connected with others via #gtchat and how it has affected their lives. Many friendships have been made and many hours of professional development have been delivered since its beginning in January 2010.

#gtchat strives to provide a place where the conversation can take place and then take off. We plan to continue to showcase leaders in gifted education as well as tackle the tough issues such as parent-teacher relations, impostor syndrome, executive functioning and the mythology surrounding giftedness (January 2013).

In preparation for this chat, I have provided some of the questions that will be presented during the chat on November 30th. It is hoped that online Tweeps will share with conference attendees the benefits of weekly chats.


1)      How has #gtchat connected you to the gifted community?

2)      How do you use Twitter in your daily life?

3)      How has #gtchat affected how you parent/teach?

4)      Are you involved in other Twitter chats?

Hope to see you all in person or online!
