If you need to review and compare alternative web conferencing and online collaboration tools you should give a look to Online Meeting Tools Review, a web service providing basic information for 35 different tools.

I have already recommended this service in May 2012, but the service has been significantly improved and updated.

For each service included you get a review, a direct link to its home page and free trial offering, and an overall rating score.

With the Basic Comparison Tool you can review up to four different conferencing services side-by-side for no additional fee:

With the Pro version of the same Comparison Tool you can get up to 12 different tools compared into a report that is sent straight to your email without any cost. The only requirement is that you accept the option of being later contacted by one of the companies you have requested to be compared.

Free to use.

A Tick List of 21st Century Digital Skills for Teachers

A Tick List of 21st Century Digital Skills for Teachers | The impact of digital brainstorming |

I've just been brainstorming digital skills that I believe are required by teachers in the 21st Century. So far I've come up with 45 of them.

What's striking for me about this is:
few of these skills will have been taught to anyone who trained as a teacher longer than 5 years ago.

Jeremy Lu's insight:

The good news is that more and more education is being given to pre-service teachers adn their students about how to best use digital brainstorming, including mindmapping, consensus building and collaboration. 


This is a super helpful list to see if you have covered the bases.

Jeremy Lu's insight:

Especially love the multiple and peer to peer interaction suggested as education 3.0... the way teaching is done will dictate the way learning happens. Very interesting.
