My Top 10 Tools for Learning 2011

Jane Hart

This is the 5th year I have been building a Top 100 Tools for Learning list (based on the Top 10 Tools contributions of learning professionals worldwide), so I thought it would be interesting to compare my choices in the first year I ran the activity in 2007, with my choices today.

9 great ways to make the iPad a useful work tool: structures, setup, apps

Ross Dawson

I am sitting in an economy seat on an airplane right now, able to pull out my iPad and immediately write a blog post, respond to email, make notes in my to do list, or work on a client report. But they are basically useless because there is no easy way to access and edit documents hosted on cloud servers such as Dropbox , Google Docs , or Box.net. Office doc formatting. Others prefer apps such as Todo or Things for their to do lists.

Thoughts on privacy

Doc Searls

And they lord over what Bruce Schneier calls a feudal system : Some of us have pledged our allegiance to Google: We have Gmail accounts, we use Google Calendar and Google Docs, and we have Android phones. The above and many other companies are listed among VRM developers here.). In Here Is New York , E.B. White opens with this sentence: “On any person who desires such queer prizes, New York will bestow the gift of loneliness and the gift of privacy.”

Time for digital emancipation

Some of us have pledged our allegiance to Google: We have Gmail accounts, we use Google Calendar and Google Docs, and we have Android phones. This is why Adblock Plus tops Firefox’s browser add-ons list , which includes many other similar products as well.

With Word, you’d make a line into a subhead by putting your text caret into it and selecting “subhead” from a pick list. It’s disappointing to me that Google Docs document programming environment doesn’t take advantage of this.

Have social networks replaced groups?

David Weinberger

Maxim Weinstein responded in an email to my post about what the social structure of the Internet looked like before Facebook, making the insightful point that Facebook meets the four criteria Clay Shirky listed for social software in his 2003 keynote at eTech. Since 2003, there are now services that bundle together these different modalities: Skype and Google Hangouts both let a group talk, video, chat, and share documents.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Technology supporting open archives, called OAI, to create lists of academic journal articles in repositories for retrieval and distribution. Though resources can be shared, each LPSS user has his or her own list of bookmarks and resources. Hence, for example, a user (who may be a student, an employee or even an expert or a professor) may wish to store videos on YouTube, photographs on Flickr, and documents and spreadsheets on Google Docs.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

An example of that is the adoption of Distributed Content Editing via an agreed to technology such as Wiki, Shared SharePoint Documents, Google Docs, etc. Many of the tools that we include in the list of social software are things that may be more like discussion group software.

Conference Wiki Examples

Tony Karrer

and for attendees with session pages, participant lists, that kind of stuff. For planning this year, we relied on Google Docs and Google Spreadsheets as the primary tools. Someone asked me for an example of a conference using a Wiki both for organizers during planning, evaluating proposed sessions, etc. Certainly we did parts of this for Corporate Learning Trends 2007. It was more aimed at the attendee side.

Top Ten Tools

Jay Cross

Among other things, the Center maintains a list of the Top 100 Tools for Learning. The list compiles the Top 10 lists of 195 learning professionals. Two years back, the most popular tools were Firefox, Delicious, Google Search, Skype, and PowerPoint. Currently, the top tools are Twitter, Delicious, Google Reader, Google Docs, and SlideShare. Google Reader. Google Search.

My Top 10 Learning Tools

Clark Quinn

It’s a fascinating list, worth looking at. On the information finding/sharing path, some tools I use include: Google – like everyone else, I’m all over searching. Google Docs – where I collaborate with colleagues on thoughts. The list changes; it’s different than what I put in the last two years, I’m sure, and may be more representative of today versus tomorrow or yesterday.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

At the core, when I look at what a team needs, it's a pretty simple list: Real-time Voice Screen Sharing Document Editing (sometimes) Asynchronous Share / collaborate on documents, web pages Discussion Notification Of course, I'm simplifying by leaving out things like video chat, recording, etc.

This makes using something like google docs or pbwiki as an experiment somewhat difficult for the poor, lonely learning professional. She lists the tools and what you should know as: Wikis : How to edit, how to read, how to link to RSS Feeds : What are they, how do I read one, once I have a reader set up how do I scan info collecetd, how do I share info using one Blogs : How do I write one.

Re-orientation

Jay Cross

Pre-web, we were accustomed to staying on top of the news by watching television, reading the newspaper, filtering magazines, and subscribing to email lists. I also cut de-clutter ruthlessly, unsubscribing from mail lists and unwanted subscriptions continuously. The icons across the top take me to frequent destinations: email, photos, to-do list, scratch pad, travel info, restaurant lists, search engines, dictionary, traffic conditions, Twitter account, and research page.

My Take on the Top 25

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Copying Emma Duke-Williams 's idea - here's Jane Hart's Slideshow of the Day list of the top 25 technologies - and where they fit (or not) in my own world: Firefox - It's my major workhorse. Google Reader - It's also a major workhorse, though I am slowly improving my own aggregator so it can take over from Google. Google calendar - I use this quite a bit, which is a new thing for me. Google Docs - I use it a little, but not a lot.

Nicholas Carr was right: Google makes us stupid. No doubt we will become worse at doing some things ('more stupid') requiring rote memory of information that is now available though Google.

The social media I use

I started making a list of all the social media I use. However, most of my email lists and social media accounts use Gmail so I can keep my other inbox manageable. Skype (chat function might be listed as a tool unto itself. Google Talk sometimes.

I was on an email list about online communities when someone in Turkey asked if anyone wanted to come to Turkey and talk about online communities. Without Skype, email, Google docs, Flickr, and publishing on demand, this book would not have been born.

and the list goes on. Well consider the following: I effectively use the Google filetype operator? I know what does the Google "~" operator does? I'm good at collaboratively working with virtual work teams and use Google Docs or a Wiki as appropriate in these situations My strong belief is that the foundations of knowledge work are changing fairly quickly and most of us learn completely through ad hoc mechanisms that are not likely to yield good coverage.
