Participate Learning allows K-20 educators to collaborate in finding and using the best digital resources within schools, districts and personal learning networks. With Participate Learning’s Collections, teachers can find and curate educational websites, apps and videos. The newly-launched collaboration feature from Participate Learning (formerly called appoLearning) gives educators a way to invite colleagues down the hall or across the country to discuss and share their Collections in real time.

Participate Learning’s team of educational experts review and comment on numerous devices and platforms including thousands of iOS and Android applications, videos from YouTube and Vimeo as well as virtually any online resource accessible on a connected device like Chromebooks, Microsoft tablets, and laptop or desktop computers.
