Cloud computing in education offers flexibility to create, share, save and collaborate from anywhere, at any time and at any pace. Cloud computing is transforming education as more and more institutions are embracing the concept of cloud computing for creating flexible learning environments. Devices such as smartphones and tablets give access to these new environments on the go, and at the touch of the screen.
The goal of this workshop is to expose educators to the concept of Cloud Computing and the technologies related with it. During the session, participants will explore ways to store and share data in the cloud, and discuss the benefits of Clouds for Education and collaboration in and out of the classroom. At the end of the session, participants are asked to identify aspects of their courses which might make use of the cloud as an educational technology tool.
