Fostering Parent Awareness and Creating Community
Posted by gtchatmod
Fostering Parent Awareness was a spirited chat with parents and educators sharing their experiences with raising parent awareness in their respective schools. This chat ranks as the 2nd most in tweets and participants since March 2012 when TAGT became the primary force behind #gtchat. Activity prior to and after the chat were at near all-time highs as well. A full transcript may be found here.
We at #gtchat sincerely appreciate the opportunity to provide an outlet for the gifted community to network and discuss relevant topics each week. Several milestones in terms of statistics were achieved this week including over 1,000 followers on Twitter for @gtchatmod, over 200 ‘Likes’ on our new Facebook page and nearly 3,000 pageviews here on our blog! Our original mandate to ‘build bridges’ within the gifted community is being realized each and every day!
During the 24 hours including this week’s chat, over 100 participants posted tweets from 25 states in the U.S. and from 12 countries. It is exciting to see the ‘global’ reach of our chat. This week, we will be announcing the addition of a second chat during the week that will be at a more convenient time for those in the UK, EU and Pacific Rim. Follow @gtchatmod on Twitter for all the latest news. If you have wanted to join chat, but were hesitant on how to participate; visit our page on the TAGT website to learn more.
