During this presentation, all attendees will learn how to use the free and amazing content creation tool called Wakelet. Presenters will give a thorough overview of how to use and access all of the features of Wakelet. Subsequently, a myriad of suggested uses and benefits for educators will be showcased. Attendees will learn ways that they as educators can harness the power of this awesome technology tool-no matter what level, subject, age, or speciality they teach! Additionally, attendees will learn ways to get their students using this technology creatively to curate content, evaluate the validity of resources, collaborate to build/create resources, and use this digital platform to share and communicate their ideas and collections.
The objective of this session will be for participants to learn how they can use the Wakelet curation tool with their students and their professional learning network. After a brief introduction to Wakelet, the audience will crowdsource a collection of favorite ISTE moments, activities, resources, images, and learning experiences. The session will then focus on a variety of ways that Wakelet can be used personally and professionally. Participants will learn how to create their own Wakelet accounts and collections so they can design their own ISTE digital journal. The learning will continue beyond the session as participants share their collections on social media with educators both at ISTE and not at ISTE.
