My contribution to Jane Hart’s 2011 version of the Top 100 Tools for Learning

  1. Twitter:
    The best source for finding, following & talking with smart people.
    twitter.com/tmiket
  2. Google Reader:
    …so I can subscribe to those smart people’s blogs and

  3. Diigo:
    Diigo has stepped inherited bookmarks after the horrendous Delicious debacle.

  4. PowerPoint/Articulate:
    The Articulate community alone is worth a top 5.
    articulate.com
  5. Adobe Connect:  
    Web conferencing & online training
    adobe.com/products/adobeconnect.html
  6. WordPress:
    For hosting this personal blog and weekly tips

  7. SnagIt / Camtasia:
    The gold standard for screen capturing

  8. Dropbox:  
    So I can get my files when/where I need them whether it’s at home, work or on the road.
    dropbox.com
  9. Survey Gizmo
    Excellent for gathering feedback & survey responses. So many uses for this..use it virtually everyday.

  10. SharePoint
    Necessary evil but a step in the right direction away from email, network folders, etc towards more open collaboration
