Learn how the free media curation tool, Wakelet, can be used when remote learning to easily collect and share resources with teachers, students, and caregivers. Wakelet can also be used to create interactive lesson plans and as a student communication and sharing tool!
If you are new to Wakelet, Wakelet is a free platform that can be used to curate and organize media content into a public or private collection. Collections can be easily shared with anyone and accessed both on the website and using the iOS app or Android app. Wakelet can be used in the classroom to create newsletters, as a backchannel, to create easy escape rooms, and more.
