Jane Hart’s Top 100 Learning Tools

Jay Cross

Google. Many times I’ll be searching my own sites. I really enjoy using Google to search images. If I need to remember who someone in a photograph is, Google will tell me about 80% of the time. I store all my files online, in Dropbox, Google Docs, and iCloud.

3 - Google Docs/Drive. So rather than passing around a number of Word documents and trying to collate the results manually, using a collaboration tool like Google Docs makes this an easy process. But there’s lots more you can do with Google Docs too.

Open Learning, Open Networks

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I have three examples of openness from this talk: First, in an earlier presentation that I saw, everything was up on Google Docs, and anyone could edit it. Solid (which is a terrible name if you're searching for it) short for “social linked data.” [21] Google Sites.

[defrag] Semantic 10 minute sessions

David Weinberger

Bob Smith of ISYS Search Software says that most people don’t find what they’re looking for on Google the first time they search. Google is an ad company, not a search company, so “you shouldn’t buy your next search service from an ad company.&# Today, we need search everywhere, for everything. Brian Cheek of TigerLogic says he’s in the search enhancement business. Links make problems for searches, he says.

Top Ten Tools

Jay Cross

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. Collaboration and sharing are edging out searching and authoring. Google Reader. Google Search. I don’t know how my friend and colleague Jane Hart does it.

Capture Examples

Tony Karrer

You still can't really search video content directly, but you can search a companion transcript, text descriptions and meta-tags. I think that's well said and when I have been thinking about how we should capture examples, I have found myself debating the merits of: A 30 minute call where we use a Google Doc or something similar for real-time editing of a screen shots and description/notes around the example. It should be easily indexed by Google.

My Top 10 Learning Tools

Clark Quinn

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. And it doesn’t really include my mobile tools, where Google’s Maps app becomes quite the help, and Photos to share diagrams, and… Also, email’s still big, and is not represented Still, it’s a reasonably representative list.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

One was having a small (7 person) project team get together on a conference call and have all of us editing the status report real-time via Google Spreadsheets. For some (inexplicable) reason, Google Docs does not.

I'm not sure how we will create these (Google Docs, Wiki, Mindmap, etc.). These would be organized around the following categories: Search Keep/Organize/Refind/Remind Leverage Expertise (Network) Collaborate Scan (Continuous Awareness/Learning) Learning 2.0 I'm doing a keynote presentation at ASTD TechKnowledge in January on New Work Literacies and eLearning 2.0 and another session on Learning 2.0.

Learning Professionals Leaders

On this month's Big Question - Lead the Charge - we are already seeing some interesting responses. The Learning Revolution: Where have all the leaders gone? It's difficult to not agree with everything that's in Tony's post an my short answer would be: yes they should, and the good ones already are.

Re-orientation

Jay Cross

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, and I admit to being a klutz with a dozen different online presentation platforms, another dozen discussion systems, and more than sixty online apps for drawing, mapping, searching, and sharing. 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. Feeling lost?

How I use social media

Nancy White

Google Wave. Swivel, IBM’s Many Eyes , Google’s Gapminder , Freebase, CSA’s Illustra… The business models are shifting. Sxty-sevenety countries are pooling their scientific data and providing federated search. Also Slideshare and Google Docs. But we’re also thinking about how you do it without the old containers, on the Web, in Google Wave, etc.

Nicholas Carr was right: Google makes us stupid. Though I like and respect Nick Carr a great deal, my answer to the title question in his famous essay in The Atlantic — “Is Google Making Us Stupid?&# — is no. But that’s all a separate matter from Google itself.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

Search is the dominant navigation paradigm. People navigate online content by typing words into search boxes rather than navigating through menus. This implies that we should do everything we can to make sure search works well. For search to work well, online content needs to be heavily interlinked.
