Curation of learning resources is a great way to differentiate and honor varied learning styles. Wakelet is a great tool for curation. It allows you to share one link to a variety of resources to files, web links, YouTube videos, PDF files, Google Drive files and more. Below is a sample of a Wakelet collection of various resources for a COVID-19 research activity.
Get started by creating an account at wakelet.com. Once created, you'll be taken to your collections page. Click the plus button to Create a new collection.
Give your new collection a title. You have the options to add a cover image and write a description of the collection. Click the plus button to begin adding resources.
The first option is to add a web link or URL. The buttons to the right give you the options to add text, pictures, bookmarks, PDF files and social media posts.
The bookmarks option allows you to search for and add resources you've saved in Wakelet in other collections. The PDF option will open your computer's files and allow you to upload PDFs saved on your computer.
The text option allows you to simply type instructions or any message you'd like to share with students. This option gives you some basic style functions similar to those seen in Google Docs or Microsoft Word.
