Join us for #NAGC chat on twitter every Thursday at 9PM/EDT throughout the summer!
(8 PM/CDT, 7PM/MDT, 6PM/PDT)
SHARE & TELL
Every Thursday evening at 9PM/EDT join National Association for Gifted Children’s Parent Outreach Specialist, Mariam Willis, for #NAGC chat on twitter. Parents, advocates, gifted teens & adults, teachers, and researchers from around the world gather for real-time conversation about topics that address education, advocacy, and community needs of the gifted.
If you have questions, topic suggestions, or would like to serve as a gifted resource on a #NAGC chat topic, please email Mariam at email@example.com.
If you are new to twitter or have not participated in a twitter chat before, no worries! It is easy.
- Sign up for a twitter account today!
- Log in to twitter on
Thursday at 9PM/EDT.
- Enter #NAGC in the search box at the top of your page. You will see participant posts that are specific to #NAGC’s Webinar on Wednesday.
- When you would like to comment or ask a question about the topic being discussed, click your cursor on the square with pen beside your name at the top of your twitter page. Include the hashtag #NAGC at the beginning or end of your post so that your post appears in conversation stream. That simple!
- You can simplify your process even more by using TweetChat, which includes the chat hashtag for you.
- Tell. Feel free to ask questions and share real-world experiences.
- Share. If you have research-based resources and/or book suggestions, please share them (as we can all benefit). Many participants won’t view them during the chat because it simply goes by too quickly. However, everyone appreciates reviewing the links in detail afterwards. The Parenting for High Potential blog will post a summary of the chat and/or transcripts with live links following each #NAGC chat.
- It may take a while to get accustomed to following the stream of #NAGC chat tweets. It can be fast-paced at times. Eventually, you’ll get the hang of it!
- If you want to direct a reply to someone, simply start off your tweet with that person’s @username (Example: @NAGCGifted use the Gifted Programming Standards for program eval and alignment with CCCS during planning and adoption phase).
- Simultaneously, it’s a good idea to search for your own @username a few times throughout the chat to ensure you catch any responses directed to you. It’s easy to do this if you save a search for your own @username.
