I got an email today passing on “The Top 100 Tools for Learning 2009” list. I know I should have left when some people chose Animoto as their number one choice but I didn’t. I wanted to see what the compiled list from 278 people looked like1.
It’s interesting to click around and see the data grouped in different ways. Mostly it makes me think that asking for a top 10 is about 5 items too many.
I also wonder a good bit about what people think of when they list “tools for learning.” Photoshop made it to #35 this year.
1 There are a number of problems I have with the way the whole collection of items works but we’ll ignore that for now.
