It all began with the need
to learn differently.
In 2010 we created the Participate platform because we needed to better prepare a network of geographically dispersed teachers to teach. Face-to-face professional development wasn’t realistic. And, traditional online learning options didn’t meet the needs of our teachers to:
- Connect & collaborate on best practices, challenges and new ideas
- Learn & develop their skills through practice, refinement and reflection
- Celebrate & certify their achievements through digital credentials
Other organizations were facing similar challenges with professional learning—so we created Participate to help people learn and work better–together.
What we believe.
and meaningful solutions.
Bold in the way we design opportunities for collaboration and learning beyond a computer screen.
Grow from successes and failures.
Let's face it, failure isn't fun. But we wouldn't be where we are today if we didn't grow from our successes and failures.
We aim to lift everyone in our community to their highest potential. We seek out partners who embody this value and have kind and sustainable business practices.
Work together for the greater good.
Everything we do is aligned to ensuring that community members have access to the quality learning they deserve.
We’re here to help you grow.
