Have you ever heard of Dropbox?  I have been using this since last year and it has been a lifesaver!  With Dropbox I no longer need to cart my thumbdrive back and forth between home and work! I also don't need to worry about remembering which computer I saved my school files to.  Dropbox is a free Web-based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization.  I have a small icon on my home computer and my work computer. I can click on that and open my files regardless of where I am. I can also designate certain files for sharing with my grade-level coworkers (if you share a file, the recipient also needs to have Dropbox downloaded) which has made it easier for us to collaborate on creating things for our grade level.
