Hacks/Hackers Manchester – December Meet-Up – Wakelet

Wakelet – collect and organise everything!

One of the things we like to do at Hacks/HackersMcr is showcase local tech companies and, hopefully, learn from their experiences. So we were very pleased to welcome Wakelet (the whole team!) to our December meet-up.

The idea behind Wakelet is that it allows you to bring together all your beautiful/important web content into one place – either for your private use or to share publicly. Each collection is called a Wake and they’re easy to embed on your existing website. Here’s a seasonal one!

I’ve also seen one of my former journalism students at the University of Salford create a Wake of  libel cases in the news to help him with his Law and Ethics Module. He shared it with fellow students on FaceBook as a potential useful learning resource.

So I like Wakelet and I think it’s got potential. It’s FREE and I see it being a really useful learning tool in class to curate and share resources around a subject.

And to show you how easy it is to use, here’s my first Wake….
