Twitter: The #1 Tool for Learning

Written by

There’s been quite a bit written about how Twitter can be used for learning. A few interesting reads are listed at the end of this post.

I personally believe that Twitter is a great tool to get access to knowledge and information—provided you follow the right people. It’s also a great place to get answers—better than Google searches sometimes—if the right people are following you.

Now learning professionals have voted Twitter the #1 learning tool. As per the 25 May 2009 status of the Top 100 Tools for Learning 2009 survey conducted by Jane Hart, a social media and learning consultant with a 25-year track record, Twitter has leapt from #43 in 2007 to #1 in 2009. While the survey is not yet over, Twitter seems well set to consolidate its top position as the #1 tool, given the lead it enjoys with 66.5% responses in its favor compared to 42.5% in favor of the #2 tool, Delicious. While Twitter’s rise is not completely unexpected, the jump to #1 is still quite extraordinary.

Here’s a short introductory video to Twitter:
