Crowdsourcing has long been thought of as one of the strengths of the Internet and specifically social media communities. This week on #gtchat, we asked our participants to tell us what information they most often seek online regarding gifted issues and where to find the best resources. We also wanted to know how important a sense of community was to those who weekly join us at #gtchat. Self-election was considered acceptable and encouraged. Their links are listed below. The transcript for this chat may be found at Storify.
Global #gtchat Powered by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented and sponsored by GiftedandTalented.com is a weekly chat on Twitter. Join us Fridays at 7E/6C/5M/4P in the U.S., Midnight in the UK and Saturdays 11 AM NZST/9 AM AEST to discuss current topics in the gifted community and meet experts in the field. Transcripts of our weekly chats can be found at Storify. Our Facebook Page provides information on the chat and news & information regarding the gifted community. Also, checkout our new Pinterest Page and Playlist on YouTube.
