First of all, numbers three and four are both gradebooks. To me that falls under the category of classroom management, not teaching tools.
While Classroom 2.0 is a wonderful community, it’s about professional development and not for use with the kids.
TeacherTube is also excellent, a great place for both teachers and their students to share their work.
And then we come to Blackboard.
This “technology columnist who has written about everything from HDTVs to computers to Flowbee Haircut Systems” either has a huge grudge against teachers or is clueless to make that his first choice.
Or include it on any instructional “best of” list at all.
