Remote learning with Wakelet

name of post

At times when distance learning is necessary, Wakelet can be your classroom! 

Everybody here at Wakelet HQ is constantly amazed by the resourceful and creative ways educators engage their students! Having to work remotely? Here are a few ideas and resources so you can stay connected with your students and faculty with Wakelet.

Invite your students to collaborate on a collection

Engage your students by inviting them to contribute to a group collection! Whether they’re adding text, links, videos, images or Flipgrid shorts, you can make sure your students are engaging with your subject, even when they’re not in school. Want to really bring out your students’ creativity? Ask them to embed Buncees into Wakelet collections to add super colorful, interactive content!

Why not invite peer assessment within the collection? Encourage your students to stay connected with their classmates, as well as their learning!

Stay connected with your faculty

With it being more difficult to connect with your colleagues, ensure you’re all on the same page during extended school closures! Share lesson-plan templates with educators in your school or district on Wakelet! This can provide your colleagues with ideas for preparing lessons that are perfect for distance learning. Wakelet’s integration with Microsoft Teams allows for optimized collaboration with your colleagues. Did you know you can share your Wakelet collections within Teams? Give it a try!
