How the Common Core Will Affect Gifted Students

This week’s chat considered the new Common Core State Standards ~ the good and the not-so-good ~ and what they mean for gifted students. A wide array of opinions were expressed. Many felt that the new standards were just another policy doomed to failure, while others thought it showed promise. There was agreement that how the plan was implemented was critical for any success. A full transcript can be found here.

Global #gtchat would like to thank Mrs. Jo Frietag for her blog post at Sprite’s Site (link below) on our chat. Jo’s blog is in the running for Best Australian Blog 2013. We would also like to thank Edtech Magazine for a nice mention and inclusion in their recent blog post, “A Printable List of the Best Education Hashtags“. Their tweet on Twitter: “You know the hashtag #edtech. But do you know #gtchat? Here’s two-dozen education hashtags every teacher should know!”

News Alert: Look for #gtchat LIVE at the #PAGE13 Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, April 19th at a special time @3PM EDT. We apologize that the month was tweeted incorrectly during chat!
