How I Use It
I use it as an organizational tool. After 10 years of teaching, the combination of Dropbox and DropitTo.me is my favourite method for having students submit their work. I also sometimes place files in a shared folder so that it's easy for students to access material from the web.There is no pedagogical value, however.
My Take
This is not a learning tool but can make classroom administration much easier when integrated with a tool like DropitTo.me . Students find it much easier to upload their work using DropitTo.me and I find it extremely convenient to have students submit everything to my Dropbox. Students can't see anyone else's work unless I share a folder. The ability to share folders can also be useful.
