At about the same time Inge de Waard the initiator of the MobiMOOC asked a similar question.
Sharing my prefered mobile tools and relating it to learning
Here is a list of my mobile learning tools and how I use them.
- emails are still my main use of communication in all areas of my life
- Skype is a great tool for synchronous communication via chat or call. I used it a lot during my study and now to stay in contact with fellow students and friends
- WordPress – although I was reluctant starting a blog and did not believe in any educational value I become an almost addicted blogger ;-). It is a great tool for reflection.
- Twitter – great information tool next to
- Google Reader – helps me with my personal learning environment (PLE)
- Dropbox – access to my files everywhere
Well, it is pretty similar to my top ten list, but these are my main means of communication.
