The topic of this week’s #lrnchat session was “Must-have Tools and Techs”.
I always find looking at the questions that are used to loosely guide the chat as a nice way to see the overall theme of the chat. Here are the discussion questions that were presented to the group:
Q1) What has innovated your practice as a learning professional? This might be a tool, technology or trend.
Key Learning Points
This week’s #lrnchat discussion focused on Must-have tools and techs. There are a number of tools that are used by learning professionals, and new and/or upgraded tools are added to the list every day. This week’s chat gave us the opportunity to examine what we use to create our learning programs.
- No longer using the My Documents folder and replacing it with Dropbox, Google Docs, and other cloud options.
- Looking at paper-based books only when an electronic version is unavailable.
- A growing lack of dependence on printers.
The discussion concluded with an eye on the future, and explored what types of tools and tech we would like to see in the future. The responses here reflected the next generation of our current tools, and followed many of the themes already present in the discussion.
