What's the best way to have students and staff share computers? We have to have a mix of Macs and Windows 8 PCs. Right now, we have USB flash drives with our work. This worked great. Problem is now students have to use git to sync their work with GitHub and Heroku. And many times students forget their flash drives. So we use the hard drive on the computer, but then all their work is visible on the computer until we delete it.
We could have spare flash drives and be careful about git. But it seems like it's time to do this better. I could network the win8 machines so each student has their own login and drive space. Mac uses would have to be separate, not the ideal solution but doable. Then the students (and staff) would have to sync their files externally to access them at home and elsewhere. Seems like just always using flash drives might be better (with spares in case of lost/forgotten drives).
