Next year, my wife will require her 5th grade students to have their own flash drive so they can work at home on assignments and projects. The portable data devices can also become class work portfolios for the entire year.
This week Office Depot has 1gig Kingston DataTraveler's on sale for $6.99.
If there is an interest in doing a group buy, let me know. We might be able to get 2 gig units around this price or 1 gigs even cheaper direct from the manufacture.
