Dropbox For You

Suggested Technologies:

  • Dropbox

  • SurveyMonkey or Sakai Survey tool

  • Variety of apps for group activity (see below)

We will use Dropbox to show how large file transfer and sharing can be made easier. To do this we will also use a survey tool for pre- and post-class assessments. During the activity we will suggest one of a variety of apps / media to take the student through all activities. Suggested files to use can include:

  • Voice recording - something structured but fun, like a haiku

  • Music sharing

  • Photo slide show or essay

  • Video project

Our Intended Learning Outcomes are as follows, in learning objectives format:

  • EXPLAIN how to log into Drop Box

  • UTILIZE tools within Drop Box to invite other users

  • USE file upload to add files to Drop Box

  • IDENTIFY other parties to share files

  • RECOGNIZE the value of Drop Box in collaborative activities

  • DEMONSTRATE a collaborative activity using Drop Box

Our learning activity will tie back to these outcomes to ensure success for students and facilitators.

Our first deliverable will be the pre-course survey. We have designed our survey to ask some of the essential questions we need to answer for this course. As of this writing (16 Feb 2010) we have received all surveys and are compiling the results. Our results will help us determine which groups to put respondents into for the assignment.

Notes from Group 5;
It is clear what a Drop-box is, but how you will teach us to use it is not described in a lesson plan or course syllabus.
You describe well the survey aspect of the learning opportunity but not clear about what will be learned, how we demonstrate knowledge transference, problem solving, or how we will use the new knowledge and tools.
How will the lesson / class be delivered?
How will you measure success or failure? Through a survey only or how will you evaluate what was learned by the students?
How will you measure what we learn? What should we expect to learn as students in this learning opportunity?
Where is the research on what others have done before you in the same vein? Any references available?
