About EdmodoCon

EdmodoCon is the leading virtual PD conference, bringing together educators from all over the globe for two inspiring days of stories and strategies from the best in the education community.

EdmodoCon will help you collaborate with other teachers, discover valuable new resources, and harness the power of edtech in your classroom. Over a dozen educators giving presentations in both English and Spanish will share how they are using technology to improve learning outcomes showing you how to communicate and collaborate more effectively. And four luminaries in education will challenge all of us to reimagine how we can support breakthroughs in learning together.

Testimonials

“I’m a pretty introverted guy and had never gotten to present in front of others before. EdmodoCon made such a big difference in my life and in the lives of my students! After EdmodoCon, my Twitter feed blew up. I was a 24-hour celebrity! I also received a little publicity in my school district, and that led me to get the job I have now as an instructional coach with a technology focus.”
Randy Fairfield, Richland, Washington, EdmodoCon 2015

“EdmodoCon is more amazing than I can even put into words. It gives people around the world the chance to connect with amazing learning opportunities and professional relationships…It shows everyone who participates what’s possible and how to effect change.​”

Rachelle Dene Poth, Ambassador of the Year, and EdmodoCon 2017 Speaker

“EdmodoCon was a great opportunity to showcase my idea to all of my colleagues past and present.  It really helped to promote more technology and true data-driven instruction. Most of our district science PLC or planning meetings now revolve around data.”

Alejandra Guzman, 2016 EdmodoCon speaker

“Because of EdmodoCon, I have been published in Edtech Digest, presented at conferences in and out of state, and have been able to bring a whole new level of credibility to what I do as classroom teacher. The Edmodo team sought out ways for me to continue to share my Edmodo story with anyone who would listen.”

John Choins, Waco, Texas, EdmodoCon 2015
