How I Use It
Students developed iMovie projects on iPads using pictures taken on a trip. After working in groups to create an iMovie on the iPads, the final movies could be sent to the same Dropbox account set up on the class set of iPads. The teacher could then use a VGA adapter and have the students present their projects from a single iPad rather than having to access every iPad separately.
My Take
We have found this app to be very useful with the iPad and other apps students use. Many of the creative apps our students use have the capability of sending projects from such apps to Dropbox. This has allowed teachers to display student projects from a single computer by accessing the single Dropbox account all students use.
