Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. This means that any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, phones, and even the Dropbox website.

Dropbox also makes it easy to share with others, whether you're a student or professional, parent or grandparent. Even if you accidentally spill a latte on your laptop, have no fear! You can relax knowing that Dropbox always has you covered, and none of your stuff will ever be lost.

Classroom Implications
Students can use Dropbox to share their work on a collaborative project or assignment. Dropbox provides a great common virtual file cabinet for students to upload resources, documents, presentations, and other information they may need to access both at school and at home. Students can access their files anywhere Dropbox is downloaded.

Administrative Implications
Dropbox provides a quick way to sync files you need to address on all of your devices. Save a document in Dropbox and immediately access it on your smartphone, your iPad, or any other device you own. Share and edit documents with others using Dropbox.
