So I have two identical computers: one that is my personal laptop, and my work laptop that was issued to me by my school. In order to tell them apart I have put fish stickers on one corner of my “school” laptop. Creative, I know. But sometimes even this level of creativity does not save me from a case of mistaken identity, and last Thursday was one of these days: I grabbed a laptop off the desk and went to work only to find that I had my personal laptop with me and the school day was about to start.
Dropbox is free, secure online storage for all your files. I save all my school stuff (Powerpoint, exams, lesson plans) to Dropbox rather than my hard drive. This is a wonderful thing because it means that, no matter where I am I have access to all my teaching resources. On the day I forgot my work computer at home I logged into Dropbox with one click from my home computer and was able to access a full day of teaching.
I highly suggest you check it out for yourself: Get Dropbox
