In the last month, Horry County Schools have rolled out new computer features for students and teachers, including the “Sky Drive” and new e-mail accounts.


Students often have the need to move work that they do at school to their homes, and vice versa. Now students will be able to use the Sky Drive to save and access their files from any computer connected to the Internet, whether they are at school, home, or anywhere else.

Having this convenient access should help students stay on top of their assignments and also reduce the need for burning files to CDs or saving them to flash drives.

This will be especially helpful and a great way to catch up in classes like business apps and other computer-based courses. For instance, another thing it is good for is if students are in a newspaper class and do not have a flash drive or a printer. Then students can just go and save their work on the Sky Drive and print it at school.

It remains to be seen how much students actually use this technology, but it should provide improved accessibility and access to important computer files.

  1. Robert, wow I admire the work you did for this. You had to do some real journalism on this one! I'm glad you wrote about it, and the Sky-drive itself too is a great idea. I hope to see more down to topic reports.

  2. This seems like a hard program to work, But it seems very useful to our students to use at home. This was great, and very informative.
