We meet on Google Hangout on Air, which streams live on YouTube. Viewers can join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #appyhour.

Get Started

Teachers using Graphite have the ability to rate, curate, and create. Members rate by sharing reviews called Field Notes. Field Notes are reviews of tools written by teachers and include explanations of how teachers have used them with students. Members curate by collecting and organizing content on Graphite, such as reviews, Field Notes, blog posts, and Lesson Flows onto Boards. And members can create tech-rich lesson plans called Lesson Flows which provide a framework for seamlessly integrating technology into the curriculum. These videos demonstrate how to get started using these tools today.
