The Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012 list is revealed

The Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012 list is revealed | DeepEducationalThought | Scoop.it

Tweet TweetThis year’s Top 100 Tools for Learning list (the 6th Annual Survey) has been compiled from the votes of 582 learning professionals worldwide.

 

The top tool for the 4th year running is Twitter, with both YouTube (2nd) and Google Docs (aka Google Drive) (3rd) retaining their places for the 3rd year in succession.

 

Once again the list is dominated by free online social tools. However, what struck me when compiling the list this year (and reading many of the notes added to the individual contributors’ lists) was the huge difference between the tools that are now being used in education compared with those in workplace learning.

Darby Whitehair's comment, December 20, 2013 2:50 PM
These are a collection of quotes on unschooling and allowing the natural process of learning to occur. I agree with many of these, but I also find great offense in others. the 24th quote states that schools suffocate children's hunger to learn. I went to school, all my friends went to school and we still want to learn. I think I take such offense because I want to be a teacher. I want to educated students and inspire them to learn. Sure, there were times in school where I hated what I was doing and felt no interest whatsoever, but I never had my appetite for learning curbed. My teachers acted as mentors and wanted me to learn, to experience the joy of learning. And I did. I attended a public school for 13 year K-12 and I now attend college. I have been in structured classrooms all my life, my hunger for learning still exists. Schools are all evil and unschooling isn't a utopia. They each have their flaws and I believe a combination of both is what we need to concentrate on finding.
