Now that Dropbox has clarified that it "may only be used by those over 13 in the United States," how does this affect teachers who are using the platform to house student files and recordings that the students have access to?
I run an orchestral strings program where each student gets tailored, annotated photos of sheet music as reminders of what we discussed in class, as well as play-along recordings and practice videos. For the most part, they are required to use a parent or family email that parents have access to for their communication and dropbox files, but they do access they folders on their own if given permission by their parents. Occasionally, I ask parents to help them film an musical excerpt or to submit music that they need help with in other organizations. Nearly 70% of my studio is under 13, but they access through parent emails.
As a teacher of children under 13, should I plan to switch platforms for housing interactive student projects where the students access their work via Dropbox? They are likely using their parents' email.
