What is Canvas PDX Summit?

The Canvas PDX Summit is the ideal place for Canvas users of every kind to learn, share and create. This summit, sponsored by Portland Public Schools, is a place founded on collaboration and fun. Participants are able to earn Canvas badges, receive PDU certificates and network with other Canvas users.

The Canvas PDX Summit, Summer Edition, will be held virtually on June 22nd. After a year of online & hybrid classes we have learned a-lot. Now we are looking to Level Up our Canvas game moving into next year! We are bringing together Canvas administrators, teacher leaders and support specialists from Oregon and Washington to discuss and explore Canvas use in education and your classroom. Some of the topics to be discussed will include the future of elementary in Canvas, sharing resources in the Canvas Commons, MasteryConnect in Canvas and more.

We are looking forward to Leveling Up with you,
