By Melissa A.
Venable, PhD What’s new in learning technology? As we wrap up 2012 and head into 2013, there are a lot of lists out there to help us discover the latest tools and techniques. The Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) conducts an annual study of learning tools, creating a list of the top 100 from votes submitted by learning professionals (i.e., educators and trainers at all levels) around the globe.
What’s most interesting about the 2012 list, the 6th year of the project, is a sub-list of 12 tools that appeared for the first time this year, some of them making their debut fairly high. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. From professional development and content curation to online communication and classroom teaching, these tools are worth watching. In the meantime, what are your favorite learning tools? Melissa A.

After publishing My Top 10 Tools as a Teacher, I received over 35 emails from my readers , some asking me why not include certain tools I did not feature in that list and others suggesting other additions.
If I had known it I would have made the list longer to have more than just 10 tools but again when I say those are my best 10 tools as a teacher I do not mean that I am confined to only these tools , in fact I use more web tools than I could ever remember their names. I love exploring new tools and trying new services and that is part of the job I do here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. However, I am extending my list to include other tools and again I will not be able to cover all. The new thing about the list below is that it comes from you , which means it is not my personal selection and that is why I named it web tools teachers are using now.
Enjoy 1- MentorMob This is a great web tool that I love so much. 2- Edshelf 3- ClassDojo 4- Scoop.it 5-LiveBinder 6- Wallwisher. The Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2012 — So Far. I usually just do a year-end list on Web 2.0 Applications For Education and many other topics, but it gets a little crazy having to review all of my zillion posts at once. So, to make it easier for me — and perhaps, to make it a little more useful to readers — I’m going to be publishing mid-year lists, too.
These won’t be ranked, unlike my year-end “The Best…” lists, and just because a site appears on a mid-year list doesn’t guarantee it will be included in an end-of-the-year one. But, at least, I won’t have to review all my year’s posts in December… As usual, in order to make this list, a site had to be: * accessible to English Language Learners and non-tech savvy users. * free-of-charge. * appropriate for classroom use. * completely browser-based with no download required. It’s possible that a few of these sites began in 2011, but, if so, I’m including them in this list because they were “new to me” in 2012.

After posting about iPad apps that teachers can use to create diagrams and charts, we went back into our archive and browsed through the posts we have previously published before looking for apps to use to create mind maps and to brainstorm ideas.
We found some but were too old to feature now so we tried to look for new ones and we were surprised to find some really interesting ones. We have compiled a list below that contains some of the best mind mapping and brainstorming apps you could ever find online. We based our selection on the evaluation criteria we shared with you before. These mindmapping tools can help you do a wide range of activities in your class. You can ask students to use them to brainstorm a topic with each one contributing an idea, they keep building up on them till they finally get a finished map of the main ideas about that topic.These tools can help your students develop creative ways of learning and enhance their critical thinking skills. 1- MindMeiser 2- Mindo.
