Global #gtchat Celebrates Its 3rd Anniversary with TAGT

gtchat 3rd Anniversary

Three years ago, the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented became the sole support of Global #gtchat on Twitter. TAGT provides the moderator, promotional consideration in its publications, a page on their website, an Advisory Board, technical support from their staff, and a live chat at its Annual Conference. Since that time, the chat has grown to include a weekly transcript on Storify, a page on Facebook, a Google+ page, a Pinterest Board, a Playlist on YouTube and this blog (recently re-designed). Our weekly chats regularly draw participants from across the U.S. and the globe.  

Longtime participant, Jo Freitag, of Gifted Resources in Australia was kind enough to create a graphic to commemorate the occasion.

It is our hope that this service to the entire gifted community will continue to grow and provide networking opportunities and information for all stakeholders. Thank you, TAGT!
