Cloud computing applies real flexibility to function. I use Evernote and Dropbox in my role as an educator and for personal organization. These two tools combine to allow users to take notes on a desktop or laptop computer, iPad or smartphone then post them to viewed or downloaded by other users.
The possible uses of this kind of power are seemingly limitless. Students can get full notes from classmates and the teacher when they miss class. Collaboration is easy and effective. Collegial discussions become organic as teachers and administrators are readily able to share best practices and ideas to improve how things are done.
Any tool should improve teacher communication and allow for easier access to information for students, teachers and administrators. Cloud computing options like Evernote and Dropbox fit the bill.
