Comments on Wakelet
“I use Wakelet to archive work materials, I use it to create teaching units and topics, it is very clear to me and I like to use it” Regina Vukasović, Biology and Chemistry teacher, Croatia, 2021
“Wakelet is a fine tool for blogging with a focus on resources on the web. Can also be used by groups. Use at university is also possible, just make sure that no sensitive data are shared.” Andrea Ghoneim, eDeveloper & support for digital teaching. Austria, 2021
“I LOVE Wakelet and fingers cross hope to be one of its ambassadors for curating. I use the app to integrate into Teams. Rival over time I can see it being MS Edge Collections but this is still early days yet. Wakelet for now is a brilliant content and curation tool.” Helen Blunden, Community Manager, Australia, 2020

“I am using Wakelet to save links to various articles for future reference and sharing.” Steve Batchelder, Learning and Development Officer, UK, 2020
