Editor's Note: This post refers to Graphite, the former name of this website.

Here at Common Sense, we're wildly passionate about helping educators learn best practices for teaching with technology. On Graphite, our amazing community of educators have been hard at work sharing innovative and practical ways to use tech to engage learners through thousands of Field Notes, Lesson Flows, and Boards.

It's now time to take this conversation, and these great ideas, to Twitter!

We're excited to announce the first ever #GraphiteChat on Thursday, April 16, from 4 to 5 p.m. PST. Titled "Weaving Tech into Teaching with Project-Based Learning," this live, one-hour discussion will be hosted by the Graphite handle @graphite and facilitated by Tanner Higgin, senior manager of education content for Common Sense Education (@fearv). We'll focus on the awesome and inspiring ways teachers like you use technology and project-based learning to foster meaningful learning experiences.

Please join us live, include #GraphiteChat in your tweet, and share great project-based learning (#PBL) resources, activities, tips, tricks, and lessons learned. Those who follow along will get a chance to win Graphite apparel!

When I evaluate lessons, I used a set criteria based on the California Department of Education’s Guiding Principles for Early Primary Education regarding the importance of an emergent literacy program in the school library. I also evaluated practices that supported emergent literacy instruction.-Marisa Martinez
