#gtchat: An Hour of Online GT Connection

Twice a week there is an opportunity to discuss GT issues in a moderated forum for an hour with folks from all over the world.

"Every Friday at noon and 7:00 p.m. (EST), parents, teachers and gifted advocates from all over the world gather on Twitter to take part in Global #gtchat.  This new real-time forum allows participants to share resources, ideas, experiences and new ways of thinking about gifted issues.  The collaboration and learning taking place via #gtchat have been invigorating and inspiring!  More than 1,000 tweets are now devoted to Global #gtchat each and every week."

If you are new to Twitter and/or Twitter chat, easy directions are on #gtchat organizer Deborah Mersino's site.
