Check out these awesome ideas for using Wakelet in the classroom as you head back to school!
With back to school season right round the corner for many, and with some educators having already returned to the classroom, what better time than now to explore the top 3 ways educators are planning on using Wakelet this year!
Meet the Teacher collections
Some students may find meeting a new teacher overwhelming and can cause anxiety levels to increase in the lead up to the first day back. Meet the teacher collections are an awesome way to combat this and can put your students minds at ease! These collections are also awesome for introducing yourself to parents and guardians too! Simply create a collection with some fun facts about yourself, just like one of our incredible Ambassadors, Brandi Reams, has done here! You can start from scratch in your home area, or copy this template!
⚡ Pro Tip — Add images, videos, music, links, and more to your collection too! ⚡
The foundation teaching: lesson plans! There’s no better place to plan a lesson than in Wakelet due the ability to add a variety of media, links, and resources to each of your collections. Simply create a collection, plan your lesson, and reorder the content until you’re happy with the structure! It’s that simple! Copy this lesson plan template if you’d like a helping hand to get started too!

This is the perfect way to communicate with colleagues, and your students and their caregivers. Everyone is kept in the loop, easy!
