  • A teacher with his head in the Cloud

    Published 04/03/15
    Having your 'head in the clouds' is not normally regarded as conducive to either studying or teaching. However, within the digital classroom it is the opposite - having not only yours but also the heads of your colleagues and students with you 'in the cloud' i.e. (the cloud service) can be a highly effective means of facilitating learning and the delivery of teaching material.
