Jane Hart has now published her Top 100 Tools for Learning 2015 list, appropriately using Slideshare, one of my own favourites (these presentations are all uploaded to Slideshare) and I see is number 20 in the list of top tools:
I wrote about my own selection recently, it was very hard to choose 10. I thought it would be interesting to see where they came in the list.
|Tool (CY votes)||Place in Top 100 2015|
So I am not alone in my choices for most of my favourites; I did not really expect WolframAlpha or Desmos to appear in this particular list but they still get my vote! WolframAlpha is useful for so many subjects – not just Mathematics.
I found it interesting looking at the list, seeing Screencast-O-Matic back in the list at number 27 reminded me to try it again; I downloaded the recorder and it certainly works very easily – now this is not the most exciting video in the world – just a test, but it took just a very short time to record and upload to YouTube:
I have included Screencastomatic is my recommendations for Writing Mathematics Online.
Other reminders for me in this list:
Padlet (29), formerly Wallwisher is such a good idea and I have not used this for a while; Wordle and the other various word cloud generators are another example. Tools to try with Year 7 I think.
Piktochart is a new entry in the list and provides an easy way to create infographics.
