  4. 4. How come?<br />Many of us depend on the www to bring information to our fingertips, to put us in touch with people & events across the globe instantaneously.<br />These powerful online experiences are possible thanks to an open web that can be accessed by anyone with a web browser, on any Internet connected device anywhere.<br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />4<br />

  7. 7. Cloud Computing <br />The abstract image of the cloud refers to the Internet. ( Eureka!) <br />Cloud computing is Internet-based computing.

  11. 11.

  17. 17. Who’s making it possible?<br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />17<br />
  18. 18. The technical workings of Cloud Computing in simple english<br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />18<br />
  19. 19. Pros?<br />Economic $$$<br />Low cost to access technology<br />Cost dispersion<br />Gives the small and medium entities an opportunity to access technology as a resource<br />Great alternative in a recession<br />Convenience  …Web Appiness<br />Access to data from anywhere as opposed to traditional desktop applications stored on a hard drive<br />Always get the latest version of any app. It is updated automatically without you having to intervene.<br />Works on every device with a web browser. The web is an open platform who cares if it’s a Mac or a PC?<br />Safer as web apps run in the browser.

  20. 20. What could this all mean for Education?<br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />20<br />
  21. 21. Reduction in costs associated with all education, including higher ed. Administrators can get more value for their $$$ spent on investments in educational improvements.<br />Is a user-defined experience. The consumer rents only those services that are used instead of paying for a large infrastructure.

They can multitask, easily moving between applications. They can digitally tag objects on a geodigital grid and ask questions about them, take pictures, post notes and receive answers.<br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />23<br />
  24. 24. Cloud computing= Collaborative learning?<br />Collaborative learning among class members is accommodated by use of the cloud for study sessions and work on projects<br />Here’s what google! Had to say <br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />24<br />
  25. 25. Okay, what’s the catch?<br />Who controls the data?<br />What about individual privacy?<br />Security of the data?<br />Reliability?<br />Liability for your writing<br />Governmental interference using surveillance?<br />12/1/2010<br />Candice Sankarsingh & Lauren Sicinski<br />25<br />
