When do we go with the cloud?

Determined to post. In the cloud ?

As microsoft schools agreement comes to a close do we jump onto the cloud in the
hope that we won't fall through?
  • The reasons why to jump
  • the netbooks with microsoft are
  • slower to boot
  • more battery hungry
  • invest development in a fading star
  • are expensive and focus efforts on what is known
  • Life on the cloud
  • looking at things with new perspective
  • collaborative opportunities to the fore
  • blending and mashups are more able to personalise experiences
  • anywhere/anydevice
  • less complicated
  • more universal
We have one teacher embedding dippity in one of our online spaces. Their investigation of inventions was well suited to this. So long as we keep our eyes and ears out for purpose the
web won't let us down.


  1. My sentiments exactly. In theory we should be able to have our head in the clouds and still use Microsoft, the operating system shouldn't really make a difference but I just can't help thinking it's stopping us from making the jump. Maybe this is a blessing disguise.
