Participate - Create and Share Collections of Resources

Participate offers a variety of free professional development resources for teachers. Last month I featured one of their free online book clubs. Today, I'm featuring Participate's free collections service.

Participate Collections provides you with a place to create organized collections of resources. You can make your collections on your own or invite colleagues to build collections with you. The collections that you make on Participate can be kept private or you can share them for others to see. Click here to take a look at the public gallery of Participate Collections. Watch my video that is embedded below to see you can create and share resource collections on Participate.

Applications for Education
Participate Collections could be great for assembling sets of resources with colleagues in your school or department. As I tested the Collections feature I thought it would be a great tool for making collections of resources aligned to units of study. I can also see teachers using it to create collections of resources that are aligned to standards.

eduClipper Was Acquired by Participate - What That Means for Teachers

The popular social bookmarking and digital portfolio tool eduClipper has been acquired by Participate. Fortunately, teachers and students who currently use eduClipper won't notice any changes. Participate's commitment to maintaining eduClipper's free service for teachers was reiterated to me many times in the conversation that I have with eduClipper's founder Adam Bellow and Participate's CEO David Young. In fact, here's a video of Adam reiterating that point this morning in a YouTube Live broadcast from ISTE 2017.
