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.
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!
Global #gtchat Powered by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented is a weekly chat on Twitter. Join us Fridays at 7/6 C & 4 PT in the U.S., midnight in the UK and Saturdays 1 PM NZDT/11 AM AEDT 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.
