Wakelet in the classroom

The superhumans are coming! This new platform made waves on the Edtech community as it offers a new platform for teachers, students, and administrators to turn links into one.

What is Wakelet?

Wakelet is a free to use content curation platform that lets you save articles, videos, images, social media links, tweets, and many other things.

It gives you the ability to organize, curate, and save content into easily maintainable story-like collections called ‘wakes’. Wakes are easily created in minutes on any given topic. You can also make it public, private, or shared with friends, family, colleagues or the wider world.

  • Share bookmarks easily
  • Immersive Reader using Wakelet
  • Newsletter
  • Online digital Portfolio
