I’m sure many of you are aware of Dropbox, so I’m not really going to spend much time explaining how to set it up, but I really felt that I needed to include a quick post extolling it’s many virtues in order to slot it into my Top 5 #edtech tools!  If you’d like to sign up for Dropbox, then head on over to Dropbox.com.

If you want a full run down on how to use Dropbox, from the simple to the very advanced, then I suggest that you head over to The Ultimate Dropbox Toolkit & Guide.

If you’re not already using Dropbox for your #edtech life here are some reasons I suggest you investigate it!

  • Great way to have access to all your files from any computer at school, home, and your mobile devices.
  • Host your own class website (I use mac iWeb to create my site, and Dropbox to host it.  You can check out my G7 Maths page here if you like)
  • Keep important documents synced to your phone or iPad for easy access.  I keep my daily schedule as a PDF synced and ready to go!
  • Use it with a PDF annotator on your iPad to grade student work and send it back.
  • Share files by sending simple links rather than attaching files.  This is great for sharing files too large to email.
  • Use sendtodropbox.com to create a virtual inbox that students can submit attachments to via email.
  • Syncing just about anything you can think of!  The Ultimate Dropbox Toolkit & Guide has a ton of ideas.
