The Graphite team hosted our very first #GraphiteChat on Twitter last Thursday, April 16, 2015. The topic was something close to our hearts: project-based learning (PBL). And while we were excited, we were also a bit nervous. Do other people love talking #PBL as much as we do? Would anyone even show up? Are we asking the right questions? To our relief, these worries were put quickly to rest. You all -- that is, educators, including a healthy group of our beloved Graphite Certified Educators -- not only showed up, but impressed and inspired us with your perceptive and inspiring understanding of PBL, frank discussion of advantages and challenges, innovative tools and project ideas, and generous tips and tricks for teachers looking to dive into PBL practice.

For those of you who missed out, we've got you covered. You'll find a curated selection of top tweets below. Of course, this is just a slice of a much larger discussion and there's much more to explore via a #GraphiteChat search on Twitter. 

Please stayed tuned for future chats by following @Graphite. And we'd love to hear suggestions for topics, or great tweets we missed, in the comments at the bottom of the page.
