Using Dropbox to Store and Share Files

Rating: 5 stars

Submitted by: Rachel Hollenback (Teacher (K-12)), Jun 23, 2011

The resource had a readable and much organized flow to it. All ideas and principles were clearly stated. There was little to no meaningless information anywhere in the lesson as every issue had a clear solution.

The creator designed the lesson for teachers to collaborate with other teachers in their department of Math. There was a clear problem of files viable for students lost or in more places than one. The teachers were looking for a way to be able to reach documents and collaborate documents with each other. The solution, using Drop Box, was clearly communicated and applied.

I admire that the creator used individualized one-on-one time to introduce the new learners, then allowed time for practice, and lastly had a questionnaire for all users that were still having any difficulty. He also set time to fix those problems and set goals for the group. Videos and Camtasia videos were also introduced for users.

Overall the lesson allowed for excellence in teacher collaboration which in turn allows for greater understanding and learning for their students.
