Cloud computing is a new buzzword that you may have heard bandied about in IT circles. What is it and how can it contribute to education?

With the help of our guest speaker János Varga, teacher at John Abbott College, this first EdTech Webinar will explore some cloud-based tools that might be useful for teachers in their practice. It will also discuss the history of cloud computing and how it fits with current IT trends, both in and out of education.
