What are your favorite technology learning tools? Now (until September 23) is a good time to send your recommendations to Jane Hart (see this link) as she for the 10th year finishes compiling recommendations made by learning professionals. Jane will be organizing her report into three broad categories of learning tools:
- Top 100 Tools for Education – those used in schools, colleges, and universities
- Top 100 Tools for Workplace Learning – those used in training, for performance support, and social collaboration.
- Top 100 Tools for Personal & Professional Learning – those used for self-organized learning.
Before the academic year I formally and systematically review the technology learning tools that I judge to be most useful to my teaching and learning effectiveness.
In the next couple of weeks I shall be sharing my recommendations and the results of my revisiting my most useful desktop tools with particular emphasis on those that enhance my writing/ publishing/ screencasting capabilities.
I now usually also give my research assistants an opportunity to give me their recommendations. Last year they wrote and published their first book about their favorite tools. As soon as they are settle in I’ll share some of their new good work and their recommendations.
Gotta run. I hear bag pipes!
