Jane Hart’s Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012

Jane Hart‘s Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies just put out their Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012 list. I have been a fan of this list for many years; it is great to see it finally released. I like to look at the list to see if I am on track with the technologies that I use. This year, I am pleased to report that a majority of my favorite applications are listed in the top 20.

This year’s list has a new twist. This year the list notes how the tool is being used, e.g., Personal/Professional use, in Education, and/or in the Enterprise. Here are the applications that I use and their ranking on the list:

1. Twitter

2. YouTube

3. Google Docs/Drive

4. Google Search

5. WordPress

6. Dropbox

7. Skype

8. PowerPoint

9. Facebook

11. Moodle

12. Evernote

13. Slideshare

16. Google Reader

17. Google+ / Hangouts

18. Diigo

19. Word

20. Yammer

How does your technology use match up to the list?
