This article is from last year, but since the warm weather is inspiring me to do some spring cleaning, thought I would share. After the long winter, my Drive is ready to be dusted off and organized--this 4 things are simple to do!

Love your reflection on your learning and great closet analogy.  Learning is absolutely messy.  And I know in my own case (as a Type A Librarian) keep reminding myself that the mess is all good.  Teaching students to become self-reflective, flexible, agile learners, when (at least for my generation!) we were taught to learn using workbooks, receiving feedback only from the teacher, and staring at the back of the head of your classmate is hard!  Sounds like you are off to a great start organizing  your virtual closet.

I like to think of the variety of the tools being the key to personalized learning.  One of my favorite quotes is from Maslow who said something like 'if all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail.'  As we add more tools to our box of tricks, we can offer our students more possibilities.
