Hop on the Wakelet Wave

There are a lot of different versions of the 4 or 5 C’s of 21st century learning, but I’d like to throw out another C that is very important. Curation! Do you know what curation means? It could easily be connected with information literacy skills that we teach to students. Curation is the act of searching, analyzing, selecting, and organizing content.

So are you ready? Hop on the Wakelet Wave and check out this amazing curation tech tool that easily allows you to curate and organize content from across the web.

Wakelet offers a great educator reference book at https://learn.wakelet.com/. It shows you the 4 basic steps of Wakelet: Bookmark, Organize, Collaborate, and Share. Let’s look at each step a bit more.

Bookmark Wakelet lets users save content from across the web. When you create a Wakelet or join someone else’s you click the + sign and get the option to add things such as:

  • YouTube – video only, no ads

  • Links

  • PDFs

  • Tweets

  • Text

  • Videos

  • Articles

  • Images

If you are working in a collection you already started, you can add the bookmark right in the collection. It also adds it to your bookmark page, Who knows!? You might decide to reuse a bookmark in another collection later.
