organise your cloud

Konstantinos Kalemis's curator insight, July 13, 2013 4:13 AM

The today’s classroom is changing. From when the school bell rings to study sessions that last well into the night, students are demanding more technology services from their schools. It’s important not only to keep pace with their evolving needs, but also to prepare them for the demands of the workplace tomorrow.

At the same time, education institutions are under increasing pressure to deliver more for less, and they need to find ways to offer rich, affordable services and tools. The results of the global financial crisis are visible all-around.  Those educators who can deliver these sophisticated communications environments, including the desktop applications that employers use today, will be helping their students find better jobs and greater opportunities in the future.

Cloud computing can help provide those solutions. It’s a network of computing resources—located just about anywhere—that can be shared. They bring to education a range of options not found in traditional IT models. In fact, the integration of software and assets you own with software and services in the cloud provides you with new choices for balancing system management, cost, and security while helping to improve services.

What’s in the cloud? Much of what’s on your desktop or in your data center right now. For example, e-mail in the cloud is, in many cases, free for schools and universities that need to upgrade legacy systems and expand services. The cloud helps ensure that students, teachers, faculty, parents, and staff have on-demand access to critical information using any device from anywhere. Both public and private institutions can use the cloud to deliver better services, even as they work with fewer resources. By sharing IT services in the cloud, your education institution can outsource noncore services and better concentrate on offering students, teachers, faculty, and staff the essential tools to help them succeed. The cloud is a bridge from the desktop to a world of devices, from the average on-campus school day to remote services anywhere and anytime. As much excitement as there is in cloud computing, it is just one piece of a technology landscape that spans from the on-premise data center to the cloud and reaches people through the computer, Web, and phone. By cloud computing, you are able to plan your long-term, data center strategy and as a result High Education Institutions i.e. Universities can benefit from opportunities in the cloud. The cloud has the power to drastically advance the goals of the educational system: to make it easier for institutions to empower their students to succeed while at the same time cutting costs and expanding accessibility. The cloud is poised to revolutionize the educational sector, and schools and learning institutions would be wise not to write off the cloud as just a business tool. The future opportunities for success or failure of students could rest in the cloud.

Using the cloud means low-cost; schools no longer have the heavy expense of dealing first-hand with their data storage and can instead devote their limited resources to purchasing effective digital eLearning resources. A cluster classroom is a regular mainstream classroom in which a small group or cluster of students with gifted identification are placed together. The classroom teacher has the skills necessary to meet the needs of gifted learners. Cloud computing is changing the ways people do personal learning, interactive learning and many-to-many learning, in the primary, secondary and higher education spheres
