Busy, Busy, Busy, BOX!

I know I've talked about Drop Box before, but sometimes a resource comes our way and we're not quite ready to use it, or have a need for it.
Now that we're all pretty much back at school, you may find yourself busy creating files to enhance your teaching. If you're like me, you could easily have files at home, school, and a few places in between. Drop Box is a GREAT resource that allows you to save and share your files on the Internet. You can access the files from any computer, or your iPad as long as you have an Internet connection. If you're working on a project on your own or working collaboratively, DROP BOX can help. Simply email your link and access to your files can be share with anyone you choose.
 We're just starting the school year, but I have found Drop Box to be EXTREMELY helpful. If you don't have an account there, you really should consider opening an account...it's FREE and you will save yourself time and energy by knowing where you stored your files! ;-)

I love dropbox! I don't use it as much for school because we have a new program that allows us to access our work files from home (love!) but my husband and I use it to share files between our two computers. It's great!

Sunny,
How nice to be able to access your files from home off the school server! My district has talked about that for YEARS, but it hasn't happened yet!
Drop Box is so easy and user friendly...It gives me freedom to save and retrieve my files effortlessly! ;-)

I love it so much, that I bought the space upgrade and use it daily or home, school and side-business ;)

No more emailing myself or digging in my purse for my thumb drive!
