Top 100 Tools for Learning

The Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies in the UK, has released its 'Top 10 Tools for Learning'.

Based on contributions from 118 educators, this list contains a very high proportion of free tools (maybe Wired magazine is on to something...); and highlights many of the social tools that have been the focus of the edublogosphere for the past many months.

Of note:
Del.icio.us is the new Number 1;
Google Reader has climbed within the top ten to Number 4;
PowerPoint may finally be beginning its slow fade;
Twitter skyrockets from 43 to 15;
Jing and Wetpaint both debut in the top 50;
Google Earth was only recommended by 3 of those surveyed...

Does anything in the survey results surprise you?
