My last post set out our plans for a Symposium and Twitter chat on Social Media and Gifted Education, taking place on Thursday 13 September at 14.15-15.55 local time in Munster, Germany. Please consult this link for times in your part of the world.
The timetable for the Symposium is as follows (Munster time):
14.15-14.55 – Introduction and presentations from Javier Touron, Peter Csermely and Roya Klingner respectively
15.00-15.35 – Presentations from Tim Dracup and Albert Ziegler respectively, followed by response from Joan Freeman
15.35-15.55 – Open discussion for local and Twitter participants featuring comments on Twitterwall
We want to give participants – whether in Munster or engaging via Twitter – the opportunity to access material in advance, so they are better prepared to take an active part in the proceedings.
So I am posting here links to all presentations and papers relevant to the Symposium. We now have a full set:
- Peter Csermely’s presentation – Social media networks and the talented youth
- Javier Touron’s presentation – Social networks: closing the gap betweeen research and practice
The presentation includes an embedded video:
- Roya Klingner’s presentation – The Importance of Global Gifted Education through Social Media
- NEW Albert Ziegler’s presentation – CyberMINT-Communities
- My presentation – Can social media help overcome the problems we face in gifted education?
This summarises a two-part post which sets out my full argument:
We very much hope you will join us for the Symposium, either in person in Munster or online via Twitter. If you will be joining us on Twitter please use the #echa12 hashtag.
We look forward to a lively and informed debate that is not just theoretical, but will ultimately help to bring about real improvements in how we utilise social media to support giftedness and gifted education.
