Top 100 Tools for Learning

The Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies has published the latest Top 100 Tools for Learning list for 2008, a project coordinated by Jane Hart.
The list is compiled from the contributions of 155 learning professionals (from both education and workplace learning) who shared their Top 10 Tools for Learning both for their own personal learning/ productivity and for creating learning solutions for others.
Aside from great reviews of the tools and good commentary about why they were chosen, I really like the way the information is so tightly integrated with the contributers. It's neat to see so many familiar names and faces associated with the data, including quite a gathering from British Columbia. Also, by having background information about the contributers, you get a better context of why that individual selected this tool over that one.

I keep returning to this site to fiddle with tools. Right now I'm looking at Stinks and Bangs contributed by Sue Hellman, a science and maths teacher in Surrey, BC. Say, maybe I should add this to the current SCoPE discussion: Rethinking Teaching in the Sciences.
