Cloud computing to enrich learning in govt. schools

Cloud computing to enrich learning in govt. schools | Journalism | Scoop.it
Steph's Journalism Group 2013's insight:

This is great article showing the advancement of the education system in places like India. The schools that are government owned have been offered an oppurtunity to learn through the use of digital devices. 

Most children don't have and can't afford this technology thus the school environment provides as a place for them to explore technology and learn about things they can't learn nor reseach at home. 

The use of cloud computing allows for students and teachers to learn about resources they didn't have access to before and will be provided to 8 schools in India.

Technology is constantly changing and schools need to ensure that they are moving up with it in order to enable children to be well rounded for the world of technology once they leave school and start their corporate lives.
