PebbleGo Sign In Posters for Our Youngest Learners

September 3, 2020

This week I have been visiting the classrooms for little library orientations with our students. Two of our all-time favorites to kick the year off with are PebbleGo and PebbleGo Next. They always love learning about these two Capstone databases and having time to explore it with their own interests as we start the year. 

Let's Go to PebbleGo with QR Code

I want to share a quick tip with you on how I get them to PebbleGo with a simple link I can embed in a QR code to share or in our other EdTech tools.

PebbleGo Sign In Page

If you are your school’s PebbleGo admin, when you sign into PebbleGo, you can also sign in as an administrator simply by using your admin username and password instead.

PebbleGo Admin Page

It will take you right into the Admin Tool within PebbleGo. Under Login info, grab the Auto Login Link to either PebbleGo or PebbleGo Next.

Let's Go to PebbleGo with QR code and Main Page

I then take that link and make a QR code using QR Code Monkey. For the TK and kindergarteners, they use iPads, so this works really well by adding it to a poster and making a copy for each student. They can use these at school or at home.

(If you are not the admin for your PebbleGo account and would like the link, typically your school’s admin would be able to provide that following the steps mentioned above.)

And for our students with Chromebooks, I share the link in their Google Classrooms so they can bookmark our PebbleGo. This will take them directly to PebbleGo all year long.

As beginning researchers and readers using PebbleGo, this step gives them confidence in the ability to get to everything in PebbleGo themselves where they can search the different PebbleGo modules to find what they are interested in learning more about and specific articles their teachers ask them to read too.
