Voting closes Sunday. This is a highly viewed list. Please take a moment to vote. “Please share your Top 10 Tools for Learning to help me build the 2012 Top 100 Tools list. What is a “learning tool”? This could be a tool you use for teaching, training or creating learning content/solutions for others, and/or a tool you use for your own personal or professional learning. Voting rules Please name TEN specific tools rather than generic technologies (e.g. “Blogger” or “WordPress”, rather than “blogs” or “blogging”) A vote for Google will be a vote for Google Search, so if you want to vote for other Google tools, you will need to to name them indvidually, e.g. Google Docs, Google Reader. Note too, that a vote for Google Apps is for the badged collection of Google Apps for your organisation – not a generic term for all Google apps. A vote for Microsoft Office will be split over Word and PowerPoint, so please vote individually for the tools, i.e. Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook etc. The list doesn’t have to be in any order of preference.”
