I thought this was an interesting list of learning tools to watch for 2013. The list is based on a survey completed by 500 learning professionals of which 17% were identified as university teachers. Twitter ranked #1, which is the same place it has ranked since 2009. …”hands down best place to learn and connect on learning and with other learning professionals.”
Google Sites and Wikispaces both had significant drops. Does this mean that the wiki collaborative platform, that gives you and others the ability to create and edit multiple pages, is being replaced with other types of tools?
Microsoft products including powerpoint, word, excel, and outlook are all listed so that tells me they haven’t completed been replaced with google apps.
New tools include Feedly, Socrative, Todaysmeet, and Pearltrees. Feedly is an RSS reader/aggregator which most likely found its place on the list due to Google Reader discontinuing its service in July. Socrative is a response system to engage students using quizzes and polls through their laptop or mobile device. Todaysmeet is a backchannel service you can use to chat in realtime. Pearltrees is a visual curation tool.
