Differentiation: Do you use a "home base" to give students options?

I am concerned that by offering too many choices to students they'll be distracted from the task at hand, but Karen reassured us that students are great at weeding through options and picking tools that will work best for them in the moment. Sometimes students will need to watch a simulation like those on Phet or read a passage in an eBook, and other times they'll need to construct their own content using online or app-based tools. The key is to give them options... to differentiate. Do you have a "home base" for your students? What kind of resources do you like to include in it?
