Significant Gains in Productivity, Engagement and Performance Reported

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / May 14, 2019 / Wakelet, a content curation platform, is transforming the education experience with its intuitive web and mobile user interface enabling users to capture and curate any type of content at the speed of thought without breaking their workflow.

Wakelet is used by a variety of educational institutions in the U.S. including the Harvard Graduate School of Education, California State University, Providence College, Millennium Community School, Wilson Preparatory Academy, and Cedar Crest Middle School for course content, assignments, collaboration and professional development.

Over 2 million educators and students used Wakelet in the past year to view, create or share educational content improving productivity and quality of work. The platform also has broad appeal with millions of visitors across the business, sports, consumer and media markets.

Free and easy-to-use, students and educators can build visually rich and informative collections bringing applications and all types of content together in one place.

They can share and organize native content inline from Twitter and YouTube as well as articles, videos, songs, blog posts, images, PDFs, or Google Docs. Every object is rendered as a visual representation creating an engaging user experience.

'Wakelet is fast becoming an essential EdTech tool for schools and universities,' said Jamil Khalil, CEO and founder, Wakelet. 'We're having a positive impact on education by helping students unleash their creativity, supporting teacher development, and breaking down barriers in the classroom. We want to empower everyone, including educators, and students, to reach their professional and educational goals.'

Wakelet also revolutionizes the way educators track and showcase their work using photos, examples of student work, lesson plans and more. These content collections support professional development and improve communication with parents.

'Wakelet enables us to communicate effectively with students, parents and teachers,' notes Mariah Rackley, principal, Cedar Crest Middle School, Lebanon, Pennsylvania. 'It allows students to publish content independently motivating them to perform at higher levels while improving their critical thinking abilities.'

'Wakelet has improved the quality of my students' work by over 50%. They work at their own pace with a 'voice and choice' developing the crucial 4Cs skills: creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking,' said Samantha J. Shaffner, ELA teacher, Millennium Community School, Ohio.
