Editor's Note: This article refers to Graphite, the former name of this website.
Graphite™ is a free service from Common Sense Media that makes it easy for teachers to discover and use the best apps, games, and websites for learning.
On Graphite, we're creating a community of educators who are sharing best practices for integrating technology into the classroom. And we've made it easy for you to join. Simply log in with your existing Common Sense Media account!
Once logged in, create your user profile by uploading a photo, choosing your school, adding your job title, and writing short descriptions of yourself and your school's access to technology.
Then you'll be ready to write a Field Note about your favorite edtech tool.
Common Sense Media members who log in and write a Field Note this week will be entered to win one of two Microsoft Surface™ RT's that we are giving away.
