DROPitTOme - Securely receive files from anyone to your Dropbox

I don't know how many of you use Dropbox but I love it. If you haven't tried it do take a look. I use that now instead of a flash drive. Okay, I washed 3 or 4 flash drives before I realized that maybe it was not a good answer for me to transport files. Then I found Dropbox. That has made my life so much easier!

Once you have that then you need this. It gives you a link so that students or others can put files in your Dropbox without being able to see what you have in it! What a great addition to an already really good feature!


Try this game with your high school students. They take a job working at or just above minimum wage and are met with common expenses through the month. See if they can get through the whole month with any money or if they run out before it is up.
