Best Blogs in the Gifted Community

gtchatblogs

The Best Blogs in the Gifted Community was the topic of a recent Twitter #gtchat session. It was an interesting discussion which was partly prompted by Tim Dracup aka Gifted Phoenix’ excellent investigation and blog post ‘How well does gifted education use social media?’

The session was one of the monthly weekend chats which are held at a time which is suited to participants in the UK and Europe. For me in Melbourne, Australia the time was 7.00am on a Monday.
