I enjoy a well thought top 10 list, don't you? Here's one from The Journal that I think is particularly well done: Top 10 Web Tools for Young Learners.
Gail Lovely, an education technology consultant and speaker at the FETC 2009 conference in Orlando, FL in January, developed a "top 10 list" of go-to technology tools to help inspire young students and empower under-funded teachers. (Raise your hand if you know an underfunded teacher! )
You will notice that the Eighth Floor offeres classes on a number of the tools on her list, blogs, wikis, VoiceThread, etc. I have played with Voki and love it. I use Skype quite often for instant messaging and voice or video calls - it's quite groovy. There are a couple on the list that I am going to MAKE time to check out: Glogster, Aminoto, and YackPack. If you have used any of these I'd love to know what you think?
