Self-Paced, Online Course
Wakelet Educator is a self-paced, online program. Participants can begin anytime and go at their own speed throughout the program. Upon enrollment, you will receive a program invitation email from TCEA’s learning management system that will give you access to the self-paced course. Within the course, you will find modules that must be moved through in sequential order. The modules can be found below.
|Module 1||Wakelet Account Set Up||In Module 1, you will learn what Wakelet is, its purpose, and how to access your account, as well as how to view and sort your collections. In addition, you’ll practice finding collections shared with you and discover how to navigate between your home and profile views. This will set you up to use Wakelet for future portfolio use!|
|Module 2||Collections and Curation||Module 2 will focus on creating collections, the types of artifacts you or your students may add to collections, best practices for each privacy setting, and sharing your collections with your school community in various ways, including via a learning management system. You will also develop the skills needed to analyze best implementation methods for either in-person or online learning with Wakelet.|
|Module 3||Collaboration||This module will focus on the ability to collaborate with others using Wakelet. You and your students will begin to find powerful ways to utilize the tool when you begin sharing collections for collaborating and working with peers. Module 3 will also introduce you to student accounts, a safe and secure way for teachers to import students and moderate their creations and collections.|
|Module 4||Citizenship and Communication||Digital citizenship and communication are the focus of Module 4. As you have mastered the first three modules, you will now begin to dive deeper into learner autonomy with the Wakelet Student Ambassador Program and the Wakelet Schools Program. Both programs are meant to assist you in a flexible way to incorporate either program as focused or supplemental learning. In addition, you will learn quick ways to communicate and share collections with parents or administrators.|
|Module 5||Professional Learning and Community||The last module focuses on using Wakelet for professional development, free offerings for ongoing Wakelet training, and how to join the Wakelet community to continue to learn innovative ways to implement it in your classroom. Additionally, you will learn next steps to becoming an ambassador or leading professional development for your own school or teachers.|
