Wakelet

Wakelet is a digital curation tool that allows users to collect and organize multimodal content, including websites, articles, videos, Twitter threads, text, and images. Wakelet is a great tool for students to collaboratively organize research projects and construct their own knowledge. It can also be used as a multimodal way to present a timeline or story.

Wakelet & the SAMR Model

Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model exemplifies the integration of technology into teaching. This model is an effort to prove more meaningful uses of technology in the classroom rather than using “tech for tech’s sake.” As you strive to incorporate online tools into your classroom, we encourage you to use this model as an analytic tool.

Here is an example of how Wakelet might fit within the SAMR model:

Far too often, technology is used as a direct substitute for other low-tech tools (e.g., pencil and paper). While substitution has some benefits (e.g., students develop their technology skills and knowledge), we encourage you to think about how you might use Wakelet to modify or redefine learning.

Learning Activities

Math 

Calculate the number of Wakelets that pertain to a topic. Create a Wakelet with content that helps students learn, practice, and assess math skills. Design a wake for a math topic, process, or mathematician.

Science

Curate research about a scientific topic (e.g., #climatechange). Learn how to conduct an experiment by gathering research and videos to follow. Ask local scientists to add resources to a shared class wake.

English/Language Arts

Create a wake for a character. Create a historical timeline wake for a book read in class.

Social Studies

Gather research on the Civil War. Curate a storyline of the events that occured on 9/11.

Online Class Community

Collaborate on a research project. Provoke conversation on the political actions changing history.
