I like to see what people put into Jane Hart’s top tools for learning, usually to confirm my biases and also see which tools people rate above mine!
What’s interesting in this year’s index is the lack of movement in the top 10; nine of last year’s top 10 are still there – Word fell to number 12. This suggests that with the disruption of the workplace and the impact on learning functions, people are still preferring their old tools.
Does this mean the old tools are still relevant? Does it mean the new tools haven’t spread far enough yet?
I’ll be keen to see how we react through the rest of this year and next year as we face the second Covid winter in the northern hemisphere, and how the workplace responds.
