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.

The SAMR piece is also the most difficult part for me.  If you think about it in this course you are learning about new tools and also trying to apply them simultaneously to new ways of teaching and learning.  It's the 'pat your head and rub your tummy' kind of learning and comes with practice!

AASL just announced their 2 'best lists':  Best Apps for Teaching and Learning and Best Websites for Teaching and Learning  http://www.ala.org/aasl/standards-guidelines/best-apps and http://www.ala.org/aasl/standards-guidelines/best-websites

Lots of great familiar tools on both lists and a few new ones to try....

Ooh, these have a lot of seriously great resources to check out. I could be lost for weeks in the Best Apps site alone. Thanks for sharing!

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!
For some, organization is a necessity, but for many, being organized is an unattainable goal--until now. Create your dream Google Drive setup with these organization tips.

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.

Exiting news via +Dan Russell in his session at ALA which was standing room only. His updated Google Power Searching MOOC will be available in 2-3 weeks. It will reflect the changes in the Google Search interface since his first version.
