Top Tools for Learning 2019

As 2019 draws to a close it seems appropriate to mention Jane Hart’s annual Top Tools for Learning 2019, an annual list I have always been interested to see.

With the majority of respondents coming from the workplace and just 22%  from education, perhaps a list of particular interest to readers of this blog is the Top Tools for Higher Education (EDU100). I was interested to see that Padlet, an excellent online noticeboard which has been around for a long time remains popular, and verified for me by a favourite source, Richard Byrne’s Free Technology for Teachers in his ‘My Favorite New & Updated Tools in 2019‘ post.

Excel is quite rightly, in my opinion highly placed. I regularly use Excel resources; just a few examples of some favourites:

Complex Loci - Mike Hadden

Complex Loci – Excel Files, Mike Hadden


See STEM Learning, part of the A Level (16+) Resources series.

Another app remaining popular is Kahoot (Classroom response tool) which is very easy to use and free for teachers and students.
