Gifted in Force at Irish Education Festival

 Irish Teaching and Learning Festival

Dazzled and Frazzled
The much anticipated Irish Teaching and Learning Festival is over. Dazzled and Frazzled made their public speaking debut and survived! Many thanks to all our old friends who came to support us and to all the new ones we made.

It was remarkable to see so much reference made to gifted students at an Irish education conference. Leslie Graves (@Leslinks), Theo Lynn (@TheoLynn), Margaret Keane (@Giftedkidsie) & James Corbett (@Daynuv) and of course Karen McCarthy (@Dazzlld) & Catherine Riordan (@Frazzlld) all spoke specifically about gifted students. This is progress indeed, in a very short space of time.

Also present were Colm O’Reilly, Catriona Fitzgerald and Eleanor Cooke of CTYI (@CTYI2) and other regular participants at #gtchat. Anyone notice a pattern?

It seems that Twitter is bringing us all together. As you can see, even Deborah Mersino made an appearance! Following our presentation which included a step-by-step guide to Twitter and #gtchat, we hope that we will see even more Irish participants at #gtchat in the coming weeks. Watch out world!

And hopefully next Friday at midnight, Dazzled and I won’t be all dressed up with no #gtchat to go to!

  1. Yes, it was indeed a very positive thing to see so many supporters speaking and spreading awareness.. I know for a fact that there where a number of people who where 'reached' on that day.. You both did the gifted community proud, and are sure to go from strength to strength.. Hats off..;-D
