Summer Edmodo Trainings

Portland Public Schools currently has about 270 teachers and 5,100 students using Edmodo. To best support our district, Edmodo is providing free training sessions (via webinar) in July for anyone interested (exact date TBD). Whether you are completely new to Edmodo, or a seasoned user, this will be a great opportunity to be trained on the Edmodo platform as both a classroom instructional tool as well as a tool for professional development.

Stay tuned for the exact date!

Edmodo has been redirected to a district domain site. If you already have an Edmodo account, you will be prompted for a school code. You will only need to enter that code once. Your students should then be able to log in as usual. You can find a list of school codes on PPS Connect (you will need to login with your PPS email username and password):

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.
