Even if you are are unable to attend the 20th WCGTC Conference in Louisville Kentucky 10-14 August 2013 http://worldgifted2013.org/ the WCGTC have done an excellent job in providing opportunities to follow events live online Throughout the conference several people have been posting on Twitter from presentations and sharing links to presenters’ online work under the hashtag #WCGTC13 and posting comments and photos on Facebook.
I have been enjoying reading the comments and viewing the photos which have been posted and have even been able to listen to broadcasts of some of the keynote speakers via http://mixlr.com/wcgtc/me/
Global #gtchat will be holding a chat live from the conference on Monday, 12 August See http://globalgtchatpoweredbytagt.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/world-council-for-gifted-and-talented-children-20th-biennial-world-conference/
For me in Australia the time of the chat will be 8.30 am Tuesday 13 August.
I was really fortunate to be able to participate in a Skype chat with Leslie Graves, Lisa Conrad, Mary St George, Jen Torbeck Merrill, Stephanie Tolan, Carolyn K (Mrs Hoagies) Patricia Gatto Walden, Ingrid (Ingennios Illuminare from Mexico) and Wenda Sheard who were attending the conference in Kentucky and Stacia Trahan Taylor who joined in from Texas It was wonderful to see and hear all those heroes of mine from the gifted education world!
