Featured Digital Tool: Wakelet

Wakelet is a content curation platform where teachers and students can save links, social media posts, videos, and images as items to later be organized into private or public collections. Users can add notes to each Item in order to tell a story, ask questions, or give directions. This is a great way to organize resources for a project your students are working on. Try it, you just might like it!
