The sky’s not the limit anymore—get your head in the cloud!

Making the most of the digital age in education just got easier. With cloud computing, students can connect with teachers, educators can connect with colleagues, and opportunities for meaningful collaboration can grow exponentially.

In this easy-to-use primer, the author of bestseller Going Google teams up with Twitter’s The Nerdy Teacher to demonstrate what cloud-based instruction can mean for teachers and students—and how it can work for your school. The book includes

  • Practical tools for integrating cloud computing into the curriculum
  • Student and teacher testimonies detailing examples of cloud-based instruction in action
  • Chapters on storing, communicating, sharing, and creating
  • Strategies for ensuring safety and security for students and information
"This book provides direct quotes from teachers and students about amazing cloud-based applications. You’ll find innovative tools and practices, step-by-step instructions for implementation, and an array of tools for all grade levels and subjects. The classroom may now be in the cloud, but this book will be at my side anytime I need tech tools that are creative, easy-to-use, and fun for teaching and learning."
Mark Barnes, Author of Teaching the iStudent and 5 Skills for the Global Learner

“It’s more important today than ever before for educators to look beyond the walls of classrooms and connect with other colleagues in their buildings and across the globe. This book will equip all educators with the tools necessary to find the best tools to enhance and improve their teaching practices.”
Steven Anderson, Author, The Relevant Educator and Content Curation, @web20classroom
