Portland Public Schools subscribes to two separate digital media products, Learn360 and PCTV, which offer streaming videos, audio files and digital photo downloads. Each service offers media from different vendors and publishers, so it is recommended that you register for both products. The District-wide license for Discovery Education has been discontinued.
The Instructional Resource Center (IRC) has created "Access Code Sheets" which contain registration information and school pass keys for both Learn360 and PCTV. These code sheets are posted on the IRC’s Digital Media Connect site by school name. Each access code sheet can be downloaded, printed, and shared with teachers and staff at your school.
Since PCTV is a relatively new service, they have offered to do trainings for teachers. If you feel that this could occur during one of your staff meetings and you are interested, please contact me and I can give you the vendor’s contact information.
