Here are over 100 ways that different social technologies (and tools) are being used by learning professionals worldwide – compiled from the comments of those who have contributed to the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2009 activity.
Blogging
(1) “Blogs are great for learning from others, reflection, story sharing, facilitating connections among people, philosophizing, and much more”  Janice Petosky,  Instructional designer,West Chester, Pennsylvania
(2) “Writing a blog is a learning activity, of course,  but reading the best blogs that are available is one of my most productive learning experiences.”  Jerome Martin, Book publisher, photographer and a musician from Canada.
(3) “Blogging is my chief way of making sense of things“ Michele Martin, Freelance Learning Consultant, USA
(4) “Blogs are obviously great ways to consolidate personal learning, but as it is such a great CMS I think that it lends itself exceptionally well to broadcasting content of a non-blog nature, or with multiple authors, as the centrepiece of an informal learning network.” Dan Roddy, eLearning Designer, UK
(5) “While everyone seems to get the blog thing now, few are leveraging the technology for what, at its root, it really is: a very quick web page creator. It can be a place to list assignments, a site for student interaction and discussion, and even a location for structuring and hosting an entire course. Google “23 Things” to see a blog-for-training at its best.“  Jane Bozarth, E-learning Coordinator for the North Carolina, USA, Office of State Personnel
Collaborative calendaring
(12) “One of the main reasons I like Google Calendar is that it was easy to embed into my website. I put all the student assignments and other events on the calendar. Color coding allows a quick visual cue so that students (and parents) can easily distinguish scheduled quizzes and tests, daily assignments, and other events.” Don Simmons, Middle School teacher, Texas, US
(13) “Google Calendar is my diary and lesson planner” Richard Allaway, Head of Geography, International School
(14) Google Calendar – “A free way for us to organise our schedules, we share our timetables among teachers and students to make the lesson timetabling clear.” Jonathan Lecun, Online teacher for UK Teachers Online
Podcasting
(15) Audacity – “The highlight of of my year is working with students in creating visual podcast to represent a year in review. This I’ve blogged as well. Podcast – Year in Review Project”  Mary Howard, Sixth grade teacher in Grand Island, New York
(16) Audacity – “Free and easy to create classroom podcasts and mp3s where the students get to hear, edit and publish themselves.  Promotes ownership – extremely motivating.”  Kora Stoll, Fifth grade teacher in Miami, Florida
(17) “All of our students have a mobile phone and if they could learn to not only reflect (as we all do) but make notes of their reflection, we would see a change in educational ownership. Students moving from ‘being taught’ to ‘constructing my knowledge’ – Gabcast is the tool to do it.”  Andrew Middleton, Staff developer, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
RSS readers
(18) “I learn through reading and participating in the blogsphere .. Bloglines makes accessing my blogs easy .. from anywhere!” Debora Gallo, Senior Learning and Development Specialist at ING Australia
(19) “Google Reader -” which I’ve added to Bloglines as one of my RSS aggregators, using each for different collections. Both are essential for my ongoing learning about what’s happening and what’s available on the web.” Joan Vinall-Cox, social media and communications consultant, Canada
(20) “Keeping up-to-date is a rapidly changing field, and knowing what the market is saying about learning, about technology, and about us is critical for success. An RSS reader allows me to do that without having to go to dozens of websites to see if they’ve got anything new. Google Reader has been my reader of choice for a year now. I can use it from any internet-connected browser. I can organise things just how I want. I can even share particular items, or whole groups of items, with other people in many different ways. I like the way it allows me to choose how I use it – its flexibility.”  Mark Berthelemy, Senior Learning Consultant at Capita Learning & Development, UK 
Collaborative mindmapping
(26) bubblus – “Mind mapping is useful when working with vocabulary as well as when flowcharting work or creating a graphic organizer for writing assignments.” Mary Howard, Sixth grade teacher in Grand Island, New York
(27) bubblus – “a great flow charting tool that lets individuals and groups sketch out their conceptual map.”  Andrew Middleton, Staff developer, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
(28) Mindmeister  – “I’ve been really getting into this collaborative mindmapping tool. Recently created a collaborative mindmap as the basis for discussions in a conference session. People from round the world contributed and on the day delegates worked on it in real time.” Rob Hubbard, creative elearning architect, UK
(29) “Mindmapping is a very powerful methodology for structuring your own ideas but also within workshops it can be a strong tool for both learners and trainers. MindMeister is a basic online tool. It stands out because of the clean and crispy interface, the excellent sharing options (share it really the way you want) and the user centric and personal service. MindMeister helps me to keep all the information in my head organized.” Marcel de Leeuwe,  works for a publisher of multimedia primary education in the Netherlands
(30) “My students use Mindomo to develop solutions to complex problems and to organize online research.” Rick Lillie, accounting professor at California State University,
Micro-blogging/micro-sharing
(31) “I’m officially hooked to Twitter and use Tweetdeck to organize and group those I follow. My best column: eLearning, of course! Not only is Twitter great for the occasional laugh, but also a great source of information and links. Have a question? Ask your Twitter network!” Cammy Bean, VP of Learning Design, Kineo 
Photo sharing
(45) “I have always loved Flickr for sharing photographs, but find the advanced search option of only displaying Creative Commons licensed photos very helpful in creating material for my blog or classes.” Britt Wattwood, Online learning specialist at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Center for Teaching Excellence in Richmond VA.
(46) Flickr - “it’s an extraordinary image collection and I can search for Creative Commons photos which I can use for Powerpoint presentations“  Gabriela Grosseck, Senior lecturer , West University of Timisoara, Romania
(47) “I’ve used Picasa in school to share photos (albums) that I put together to supplement different aspects of my curriculum.”  Mary Howard, Sixth grade teacher in Grand Island, New York
Screencast sharing
(48) Jing – “I’m finding I’m using this more and more. It’s similar to Wink, Captivate and Snagit. However, where these are great for producing finished, polished products, Jing just sits there for when it’s needed and works quickly. It’s ideal for producing “disposable learning objects” (not my term, but it’s starting to appear more frequently). If I need to show someone how a software function works, I capture it (either as a single image or a movie – with narration, then can choose whether to publish it to TechSmith’s Screencast.com site, to my own ftp site, or to a file. It’s simple. It’s easy to use. And my clients think it’s great.”  Mark Berthelemy, Senior Learning Consultant at Capita Learning & Development, UK 
Presentation sharing
(53) Slideshare – “This is a great way to share student work on a webspace”. Mary Howard, Sixth grade teacher in Grand Island, New York
(54) Slideshare – “Source of great learning resources”. Maria de los Angeles Castro, instructional designer at CSI Piemonte, Italy 
Video sharing
(57) “The ability to quickly create a small learning piece and then distribute it to thousands of people instantaneously is great for quick pieces of instruction. I embed YouTube and TeacherTube videos into wikis and blogs all the time.”  Karl Kapp, professor of Instructional Technology and the Assistant Director at Bloomsburg University in Bloomsburg PA 
Social bookmarking
(64) Delicious – “crowdsourced learning, best links” Martin Schlichte, CEO of Lecturio.de
(65) “I’m constantly adding webpages or blogposts to my Delicious. Information I can use for presentations, lectures, blogposts and papers. My students are used to finding a link to a specific Delicious tag in their ‘required reading’ list. I teach my students to search in Delicious as an alternative to Google. I like the collecting aspect of saving websites to Delicious (more, more!) ” Jeroen Bottema, Teacher trainer for the School of Education Amsterdam, 
Collaborative editing
(75) “My students LOVED using Etherpad for collaborative editing activities. I have blogged a lesson in which I used this tool at Collaborative editing through Etherpad. Students uploaded a writing assignment that they were working on and collaboratively edited with another classroom in this virtual space. Etherpad also allowed me to have guest editors participate in the process.”  Mary Howard, Sixth grade teacher in Grand Island, New York
(76) Etherpad - “Realtime collaborative text tool. Students can write, edit, compare points of view, have online debates. I get some students putting the account into the past tense, others adding positive bias, others adding negative bias – all at the same time. I also use it during exam leave for students to leave questions for me to answer – this is better than email because the other students then get the benefit too”.  Russel Tarr, Head of History at the International School of Toulouse
Collaborative working
(77) Google Docs – “students submit work this way; surveys throughout the class; class brainstorming on a shared document; gradebook simulations on spreadsheets, etc.; too wonderful for words; “WebCT didn’t work” or “but I sent you an email” are excuses that don’t work here; students can get to class content here and on my site anywhere there is internet access.” Sarah Davis, Associate Dean at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC 
Social networking
(98) Facebook “provides easy communication with students and colleagues, and private communication in groups” Pat Parslow, Researcher at OdinLab, School of Systems Engineering, University of Reading. UK
