Individuals and social media
For the last five years I have been compiling a Top 100 Tools for Learning activity – based on the contributions of learning professionals worldwide.
I released 2011 list in the middle of November and it has proved to be a popular resource. (The presentation on Slideshare has now been viewed over 350,000 times.)
As you will see the list is once again dominated by free online social media tools. This is just one of the trends I have been noticing over the last five years.
This and the fact that for many people personal and professional tools are merging, and people are now doing their own thing – using their own tools and devices to do so.
