In a few days my iPad will arrive. So I expect some changes in this list soon
En of de iPad gevolgen heeft gehad voor mijn top 10!
- iPad – In a few weeks I became addicted to this learning tool. I use it to communicate with others, to read e-books and documents, to blog, to check my RSS-feeds, to make notes, to read websites offline (I don't have the 3G version), for watching TED-videos, to mindmap, and so on. How did I do this before I had this great device?
- Twitter – Twitter points out to me new resources used by other experts. I use it to share thoughts and information with other learning professionals. Great for asking questions (and giving answers). Personally, I hardly visit Twitter's website. I use Tweetdeck on my Macbook and iPhone, and Twittelator on my iPad.
- iPhone – During summer holiday my iPhone fell into the sea. Since then, I realised how really important my iPhone is as a learning tool. I use it to search for information on wikipedia (even geo-based), to search with Google, for e-mail, for twitter, to check RSS-feeds, to phone, for sms and Whatsapp (sometimes), to check Facebook, and to listen to podcasts (sometimes). Especially in places where I have no wifi internet connection (trains, railstations, bars).
- Google Reader – I use Google Reader to read about 430 RSS feeds. On my iPad and iPhone I use MobileRSS, an app for Google Reader. Most of the information I receive, comes to my by RSS.
- TypePad – I use this blog tool for some years now. Userfriendly and reliable. Helps me reflecting on developments.
- Read it later – great tool. I use it to save blogposts and online articles offline. I read them on my iPad. I also have the opportunity to tweet, mail or save them to Diigo or Evernote.
- Diigo – Delicious is dead, long live Diigo. Okay,the rumors of it's death have been greatly exaggerated. But since Yahoo's announcement, I have serious doubts about the sustainability of Delicious. It turned out that Diigo too is a great tool to save and share interesting websites and blogposts. I use it to collect sources for presentations, papers, articles and -of course- blogposts. The only thing I miss is the option in MobileRSS to save blogposts to Diigo.
- GoodReader – Of all the iPad readers I use, GoodReader is definitely my favorate (although I miss annotation functionality). I use it to read Word-documents, PDF's, RTF-documents and so. It also had some great functionalities to manage documents.
- SpotLight – great search option on my MacBook. I use it to search lots of documents and presentations on my MacBook.
- LinkedIn – resource to look for experts and to share thoughts with others. I should use it more intensively.
