There will not be a Twitter #gtchat session this week due to the US Thanksgiving holiday but next week will be very exciting.
Lisa Conrad, (@gtchatmod) the moderator of #gtchat, will be attending and giving presentations at the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented Building Connections Conference in Dallas, November 28 – 30, 2012 and TAGT’s Parent Conference on November 30th.
Lisa will be presenting sessions titled “Why You Should #gtchat on Twitter and, “Collaboration, Not Confrontation: Parents and Teachers Working Together”
On Friday, November 30th, #gtchat will be live from the Social Connections Area in the Exhibit Hall. It will begin @10:30AM CT for conference attendees (although everyone is invited online) and from 11AM to Noon CT [Find your time here.] on Twitter. The topic will be “Building Bridges with #gtchat”.
Following chat, there will be a 40 minute Tweet-Up for those at the conference.
Chat participants on Twitter are invited to tweet about how they have connected with others via #gtchat and how it has affected their lives. Many friendships have been made and many hours of professional development have been delivered since its beginning in January 2010.
In preparation for this chat, Lisa has provided some of the questions that will be presented during the chat on November 30th. It is hoped that online Tweeps will share with conference attendees the benefits of weekly chats.
1) How has #gtchat connected you to the gifted community?
2) How do you use Twitter in your daily life?
3) How has #gtchat affected how you parent/teach?
4) Are you involved in other Twitter chats?
