We watched the official video from the drop box site, I explained how the sharing of folders would work during class and we practiced uploading some documents to a folder I shared with each class. Eventually, students understood the idea that they could access different people’s shared folders from one dropbox account.
During the past few days I was pleased to hear some students say they have installed the dropbox application at home and are using it to access their files at home and at school. We will continue to use dropbox as a place where students will submit their work or assignments into folders shared with them.
If you use multiple computers, ask your 7th or 9th grader about how dropbox can help you or watch the video at www.dropbox.com.
