How I Use It
Several teachers in my building have used Dropbox. They use it to move photos and videos between devices and between computers and devices. We use it to share ePubs with parents. One teacher had each student create an All About... eBook in ePub format using an app called Book Creator. We were able to share the ePub books through Dropbox so that parents at home could view the books as well.
My Take
In my opinion, this should be on every iPad. It's the single easiest way to get photos, videos and ePubs from a device to a computer. You can also use it to transfer photos and videos from one device to another. This makes it much easier to complete group and individual projects that use media. It's a super simple interface and a perfect way to take media off an iPad and share it with others.
