I sat down to work on my Cool Tools assignments this evening. I really don’t know how anyone in this class gets anything done! There are just so many great websites, tools, and ideas out there!
The very first Pinterest board I looked at led me to this graphic that I loved so much I spent the next hour working on my own version. (which I somehow lost…grr) The graphic led me to Bobcatblog, which could easily lead me down another path if I let it.
I tried to reign myself in and returned to the Cool Tools blog to see what else there is to try. There is just too much! Look at all the tabs I have open! There are more that you can’t see – I have to scroll side to side to find them all. Every open tab is a website that I want to explore further. I know if I close the tab, I’ll forget to back, even if I do put it in my favorites. (It’s happened before – looking at my favorites is like a little Christmas every time.) I have to stop. I have to figure out a better system. I have to find a few more hours in each day. How do you manage to keep on top of all the new technology and tools out there? How do you stay on top the multitude of great blogs and professional reading? How do you NOT feel completely inadequate when you see all the fabulous things other teacher librarians are accomplishing?
