Wakelet is quickly becoming a popular choice amongst teachers who want to create collections of notes that can include text, videos, links, and pictures. Students can use it for the same purpose and share their collections with their teachers.
This week Wakelet added a new feature to their Chrome extension. The Wakelet Chrome extension now let's you drag any open tab into a collection in Wakelet. You can even build a collection of open tabs. Watch this twelve second video to see how Wakelet's Chrome extension works.
Applications for Education
One of the ways that teachers can use Wakelet is to create collections of sites and videos about the topics they're teaching. Then within that collection make sections that correspond to sub-topics. That way students could go to a collection then quickly jump to a section of resources that corresponds to the topics that they need to review before an exam.
