Jane Hart has compiled the annual list of top learning tools. This year, 2000 learning professionals across the world from both education and business contributed to the 9th Annual Survey of Learning Tools.
The Top 20 in the list
- Google Search
- Google Docs/Drive
- iPad and Apps
The only tool on this list I am not familiar with is PowToon to create animated videos. I need to find some time to explore it. I found out about Kahoot last year and it really is a great tool for quick online polls and fun tests. Try it out! As in previous years, the list is dominated by free online tools, many of which are social media tools. To the see the full list of 100 tools visit the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) website. For my own learning, the key tools I find most useful are 1) Dropbox – to synchronise my files across my different devices and for backup 2) Mendeley – for reference management 3) MS Word & Excel – for writing and classifying 4) Google Search – for searching, including Google Scholar and 5) Email – for communication. I do use Twitter and Youtube, but to a much lesser extent.
