The #gtstoogies lobby is set up as a teachers’ lounge for this week’s gathering after the only #gtchat session for this week which will be a session guest moderated by the wonderful twitterbrarian (or cyber librarian) Cybraryman, Jerry Blumengarten, on the topic What makes a Great Teacher of #gifted children?
Cybraryman has a webpage for everything and everything on its page! He facilitates and participates in many Twitter based education chat sessions and has a page which lists the numerous education chats at http://www.cybraryman.com/chats.html
He has a well stocked Gifted and Talented page at http://cybraryman.com/gifted2.html
Cybraryman has also often joined the #gtstoogies merriment and acted as our cyber DJ, choosing just the right music to suit the theme and mood of the occasion.
The Dabrowski Dogs are as eager as ever to participate in the #gtstoogies gathering and a selection of key books has been chosen for display on the bookshelf.
In case you have forgotten to bring your spectacles, here is a close up view of the pin board which includes the notice about this weeks’ #gtchat, a poster for New Zealand’s Gifted Education Centre GO Gifted Online and The Bavarian Center for Gifted and Talented Children’s Gifted Education conferences in Second Life. There are pictures of Tim Dracup aka Gifted Phoenix as he appeared in Second Life and Dr George Betts presenting his Autonomous Learner Model at the most recent Second Life conference.
