US 100 dollar bill

The title is quite suggestive as it should be. Jane Hart, the builder of the list, surveyed 1,038 learning professionals from 61 countries worldwide to get to the top 100. For Jane Hart, a learning tool is defined as “any software or online tool or service that you use either for your own personal or professional learning, for teaching or training”.

With that in mind, its nice to break that list down to the top 10 learning tools. I simply grabbed the top 10 from Jane’s list (the entire list can be viewed here) and have listed them below.

  1. Twitter
  2. Google Docs/Drive
  3. YouTube
  4. PowerPoint
  5. Google Search
  6. WordPress
  7. Dropbox
  8. Evernote
  9. Facebook
  10. LinkedIn

Within the 100 list, Jane has also taken the time to break the list down into categories (e.g. education, ePortfolios, quiz/poll/surveys etc.). This list is known as the Best of Breed and is available here.

Finally, if interested, a Guidebook can be purchased (for a minimal cost) that provides even more information about each of the tools on the Top 100 list.
