Change is constant and I have learned to count on this each and every day, like it or not. There are good tools and there are "distracting" tools and the more I investigate the more I learn the difference between the two types of tools for my needs. This will be different for everyone and that's why it's important to offer a "backpack" of tools instead of just a handful.
Sometimes a tool I really like and used well get's lost and I'm forced to find a replacement. This isn't easy and I get frustrated, but moving forward is necessary. My backpack (or toolbox) is in a constant state of flux.
A few days ago a member of EdTechTeacher posted, Back to School App-Pack article on his blog. I loved the graphic and wanted to share it with all of you.
