How I Use It
Primarily used to provide students with materials for their work when they are out of my classroom (out sick, in-school suspension) or to provide materials when I am not present in the classroom.
My Take
While there are other apps available that serve the same purpose, Dropbox, having been around a little longer, has perfected its operation. It works and works well, even if your school may be limited in technology. It helped me as a teacher to stay more organized and have materials at the ready. Also, if our class conversation takes an interesting turn, I could easily access documents or materials I saved no matter what room I am teaching in (ie: computer lab, library, etc.). Similarly, it allowed students with computer access to submit work from outside of the school environment.
