Participate Learning is an educational resource discovery and curation tool for teachers. Users can search through thousands of expert-vetted educational apps, web sites, and videos by subject area, grade, category, keyword, or Common Core State Standard. Many of the resources and apps include expert reviews, which the site states are written by “professional educators, actively working in the field.” Users can also add their own reviews for any app or resource.
