How I Use It
Sharing folders with students and sending documents back and forth would be one way to use this app. Teaching students organization skills is important and with this app you can teach them how to organize their documents in effective ways. The universal design would give students basic skills that they may use on other software for virtual storage.
My Take
This program has similar features to dropbox. Teachers can drop assignments into individual folders for students to retrieve and students can send documents back to the teacher. This app is strictly a no-frills- down-to-business app and might be difficult for someone who isn't experienced with virtual organization. The biggest hindrance is that it only works on Android operating system and is not available anywhere else. Students who do not have android devices would not be able to access and share anything. This is not a tool ideal for a whole classroom for this reason. Those with droid devices might find it useful because it does take all the files on your phone and place them in folders as well. Everything is organized neatly on your device.
