What tools do you use? Which should be investigated?

I’ve never tried VoiceThread even though I have had the opportunity to do so several times. I am uncertain as to why it did not capture my imagination; many of the other tools in the diagram above certainly have.

What makes us take some up and leave other tools on the bench?

    For me it is a mixture of accessibility at school and level of competency required to use the technology. I love Voicethread, and have tried to use it a few times with classes. The first problem is that it’s blocked through the DET portal, so kids can only access it at home; the second problem is that students need to have a microphone for it to really be fun (the text messages are dull), and students sometimes cannot troubleshoot microphone/volume etc. problems, even if they do have the right equipment.

    I love the visual rep! Interesting that Google Docs is in analysing and not creating, but I guess many of those tools would overlap categories depending on context. A great starting point for discussion with teachers about web 2.0 and pedagogy.
