The Top 100 Tools for Learning 2012 list is revealed

The top tool for the 4th year running is Twitter, with both YouTube (2nd) and Google Docs (aka Google Drive) (3rd) retaining their places for the 3rd year in succession. Once again the list is dominated by free online social tools. However, what struck me when compiling the list this year (and reading many of the notes added to the individual contributors’ lists) was the huge difference between the tools that are now being used in education compared with those in workplace learning. In terms of tool trends, this year’s list has seen an increase in the popularity of curation tools and social magazines for the iPad (like Scoopit, Flipboard and Zite).

Pyramide des besoins de Maslow

Pyramide des besoins Théorie de Maslow[modifier | modifier le code] Présentation générale[modifier | modifier le code] C'est en 1970, dans la deuxième édition de son ouvrage Motivation and Personality, qu'apparaît l'exposé le plus complet de sa théorie de la motivation : la hiérarchie des besoins. Recherchant ce qui se cache derrière ces motivations, il met à jour cinq (groupes de) besoins fondamentaux : les besoins physiologiques, les besoins de sécurité, les besoins d'appartenance et d'amour, les besoins d'estime et le besoin d'accomplissement de soi. Maslow découvrit par la suite que les besoins s'inscrivaient dans le cadre d'une hiérarchie. Remarque : Lorsqu'un besoin précédent n'est plus satisfait, il redevient prioritaire.
