So…here is the first step to the Wakelet Student Ambassador Extra Credit Assignment. Just create an account, I also encourage you play around on the site and see what you can do with Wakelet. The detailed instructions are on the embedded video below.
For those of you who do not want to watch the video, here are the instructions: Go to Wakelet.com and click on “Sign Up It’s Free” and create an account. I suggest using your school Google Account to do this. Once you have done this, email me with your username, so I can keep track who is who. Lastly, play around on the site and see what it does, studies on learning indicate that people learn more by experimenting and looking around on their own before being handed a set of instructions.
PLEASE DO NOT WORRY, instructions on how to use Wakelet and a brief video tutorial will be sent out tomorrow, along with the assignment for the first badge.
In the mean time…take care.
