Top 100 Learning Tools in 2011

It’s just about that time of the year when people start compiling their list of favourites from the year gone by , whether it be music tracks or films or books or anything else. So I thought I’d get in early, not with a list of my own, but with this terrific list of top learning tools compiled by Jane Hart of C4LPT which I found via Twitter. What I particularly like about it is the simple formatting and the fact that it includes quite a number of tools which have been around for so long we have stopped thinking of them in that way. Have fun counting how many of them you use already and making a note of the ones you will be desperate to try out.

Literacy in the 21st Century

Had a great meeting with Mike Coulter yesterday about some of the technical aspects of blogging as I move gently along the learning curve. We ended up talking about running marathons, triathlon and the connection between sport and mental health, but that’s another big story for another day. Mike also pointed me in the direction of the Slideshare website, a terrific resource for anyone who has a presentation to prepare, and it’s searchable by keyword. I have added a good example of a presentation on Literacy in the 21st Century by David Warlick.
