AirDrop is the easiest and fastest way to share files between Macs. It's a great way for Digital Classroom students to share work from a MacBook Air to the teacher's MacBook. Here's how it works:
1. Open AirDrop on both/all Macs that need to share files by clicking GO and AIRDROP. (If you don't see GO on the menu bar, click anywhere on the desktop or open any Finder window.)
2. All the Macs in the area with AirDrop open will show up on the AirDrop list.
3. To share a file, simply drag the desired file onto the appropriate user's icon in the AirDrop list. Click SEND when prompted.
4. The recipient will get a notification of the file and can choose SAVE AND OPEN, DECLINE or just SAVE.
That's it! Easy as pie. How could you use AirDrop in the classroom? Leave us a comment with your ideas!
