Organize Your Digital Resources
March 2, 2019
In today’s world, students need abundant experience with visual and digital texts. However, collecting and organizing all those resources can be tedious and time consuming for teachers.
Thankfully, there are multiple Web 2.0 tools available for teachers to customize and organize their digital-resource sets. Here are some favorites:
Blendspace: Make the most of class time by blending your lessons with digital content in a snap. This tool enables teachers to easily drag and drop digital media from several sources, upload their own content, and share with peers/students with ease. View example blendspaces in math and reading. For more information on Tes Teach, view this tutorial.
Wakelet: This is another free bookmarking site that allows users to:
- Save (and edit) articles, videos, images, Tweets, and pretty much any link you find online.
- Organize and arrange your saved items into collections.
- Keep your collections private or make them public.
- Embed collections within any blog or website.
