It’s hard to believe it’s back to school season already, but we’re excited to see what this new school year brings for educators around the world!
You’re probably already planning, creating lesson plans, gathering resources, and reading up on this year’s curriculum. Whether you’re a teacher, librarian, edu coach, or administrator, Wakelet is the perfect addition to your toolkit this school year!
So, how can you kick start your Wakelet journey and save time so you can focus on what’s important?
Sharing important links, documents, resources, and videos that will enhance your students’ learning experience can be difficult. Sharing links with multiple students is difficult enough, but when the links are shared on a lifeless PDF that students don’t engage with and lose quickly, the process of sharing learning materials quickly becomes quite the challenge! Wakelet solves this problem by allowing you to create interactive and engaging collections that house all of your resources on a lesson-by-lesson basis.
Creating collections is quick and easy due to the super fast nature of adding links, images, PDFs, videos, and more! Create an unlimited amount of collections all for free, and separate them by grade, subject, topic, and lesson!
Students will be able to explore all of the resources you share with them in one easy-to-access place using just one link. Easy!
Streamline Parent Communication
Communicating with parents throughout the year can be a tough challenge, but Wakelet is here to help! One of the fastest ways to share information with a large group of people is newsletters, and Wakelet shines when it comes to helping you create a newsletter quickly!
Sending out one link with a bunch of information to parents is straightforward with Wakelet, and means all parents can keep up to date with your class and school. Newsletter collection can be kept private too, meaning only the parents who need to see your newsletters can.

This school year, combat the social media platforms with the Wakelet Student Ambassador Program! Take on six unique tasks that improve key digital learning skills, and encourage student leadership! Each task focuses on one of the six C’s: communication, collaboration, curation, creativity, critical thinking, and citizenship.
