How I Use It
Dropbox isn't a tool that I would necessarily have my middle school students use. I think it would be appropriate to use with high school or college students, but I would be hesitant to use this with younger students. For teachers and other professionals, Dropbox can be useful when sharing or storing documents or photos. I think that there are other file-sharing tools out there that are much more student-friendly.
My Take
Overall, I wouldn't use this tool for teaching my middle school students. I have found the most success when using Dropbox to share documents and files with coworkers and colleagues. If I taught high school then I would definitely offer Dropbox as a means to organize documents. I personally think there are more user-friendly file storing tools out there that better suit younger students.
