Atlanta News | Tweetup on Friday at NAGC!

I’m delighted to be in Atlanta for NAGC’s 57th Annual Conference! It’s sure to be a phenomenal week of learning and collaborating. A few updates:

  • Global #gtchat: We will be having one #gtchat session at 7:00 p.m. (EST) on Friday, November 13th. Our topic will be “Drive: Motivation and the Gifted Child.” Join us! If you’re new to Twitter and want more information on #gtchat, click here.
  • Meet f2f (face-to-face) in Atlanta: I’m helping to orchestrate an #NAGC #Tweetup! Whether you are active on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and/or other social networking sites – or simply interested in learning more – be sure to mark your calendars. We will be gathering Friday night (after #gtchat) at 8:30 p.m. in the Lobby Bar on the 5th floor of the Westin Peachtree Plaza. Follow @DeborahMersino on Twitter and/or “like” the Ingeniosus Facebook Page and stay tuned for details. And plan to keep Friday night open; our #NAGC #Tweetup will be informal and fun! (Note: everyone will pay for their own beverages). If you know for sure that you’re coming, let me know!
  • Get the Latest News: I will be posting live updates from NAGC via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, so feel free to connect and enjoy. I’ll be using the #NAGC hashtag on Twitter (and know others, like @PrufrockPress, will be as well). How exciting!
  • Learn More About the Power of Social Networking: I’m honored to be a part of a timely and informative panel discussion with Joel McIntosh, publisher of Prufrock Press, Carolyn K. of Hoagies Gifted Education Page and Ian Byrd of Byrdseed.com, being offered at NAGC on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. We would love to see you. Click here for more information on this session!
  • Get Your Questions Answered: Have a question about social networking and/or wonder how your school district, summer program, counseling center and/or business might benefit? Feel free to send me an email. I will be happy to answer your questions and/or set up a time to chat.

For those who can’t be in Atlanta, you might want to check out the NAGC 2010 Virtual Conference.

To our friends in Texas, here’s wishing you all a successful TAGT conference! And to everyone near and far, here’s to you! Just consider how social networking has exploded in 2010. So many of you are helping to ignite this potent collaboration on behalf of gifted learners worldwide. Just think of what can be done in 2011 and beyond!

Warmest regards,

Deborah Mersino
