Web 2.0 Wednesday: Try Out One of the "100 Helpful Web Tools for Every Kind of Learner"

It's Wednesday, which means it's time to play around with Web 2.0.

This week's activity is to try out one (or more) of the tools on this incredibly comprehensive list of tools for every kind of learner and learning style.  There are a few ways to go at this:

  • Find a tool that matches with your learning style. Try it out to see if it's easier for you to use because it fits into your preferred mode.
  • Find a tool that doesn't match with your learning style. Is it harder for you to use? How could you use this experience to think about learning and working with learners who prefer other modes.
  • Compare a couple of tools--how do the mindmapping tools differ, for example? Or how does mindmapping compare with using one of the note-taking tools?
  • Take something that you've previously created in one format and use one of these tools to convert it to another format. For example, turn a blog post into a chart or a podcast. Try to create something that might address a sensory channel that you don't always focus on.

As usual, feel free to blog your experience, tagging it with web2.0wednesday. You can also leave a link here in comments. If you want to check out what everyone else is doing, stop by the wiki.  Remember, this is low stress learning, so if you don't want to join in this weekend, maybe we'll catch you next time.
