Value Of Cloud Computing In Education

The way we live and work has always been determined by the stage of technological development. Since the earliest major technological inventions the development of society depended on the way they adapted to necessities of modern life. Many industries including education tend to embrace technological solutions in order to progress. However, this process is not always as easy and accurate as it should be.

Educational institutions have to be fast to adopt new technologies both in curricula and in their own activities. Connecting all the institutions in a single country may require advanced technology but such connectedness is necessary for better collaboration and faster progress of the industry. Today many schools worldwide still operate on outdated computing systems but their functioning should comply with the requirements of modern life so it would be appropriate and real.

Google Chromebooks in Education

There have been many studies examining the relation and impact of technologies in education. International Data Corporation (IDC) worked with Google on examining the use and value of Chromebooks in education. The white paper they came up with offers some useful information on how the current technologies help improving education system on different levels. One of the most important findings of the research was that the use of chromebooks can significantly reduce labor to install and support a computer program which further reduces the need for hiring IT staff. In addition to this, it cuts costs of owning devices.

Technologies have always been a major driver for all kinds of changes. In education it helped creating a more cohesive community between teachers and students worldwide. Connecting people in this way helps enhancing collaboration, making resources accessible and facilitating the administration.

Google Apps Connecting Philippines

One example of efficient application of cloud in education is adoption of Google Apps. A blog post by Reynaldo D. Laguda, Assistant Secretary and ICT Chairperson of the Philippines Department of Education (DepEd) represents a valuable example of how Google helps solving problems in education. Namely, Philippines Department of Education (DepEd) came up with the idea to move their systems to Google Apps for Education and thus connect 45,000 schools, 600,000 staff across more than 7,000 islands.

So what were the benefits?

Improved communication. All the staff was connected through a unified channel and they could communicate and share more easily. This not only enabled a communication among the people in the same institution but across remote institutions as well.

Accessibility. Having information always at hand has always been important for successful development. In this case, Google Apps enabled even the teachers working in remote areas to have a constant access to the most important documents from any device. Besides this, teachers that are geographically distant are able to collaborate in real time using Google Docs, which is especially convenient for foreign language teachers and translators.

Google is working hard on implementing their services in educational institutions all over the world and the examples like the one with DepEd clearly shows the usefulness of advanced technological tools in education. Cloud solutions such as Google Apps may help many industries in various ways and all the IT managers that still haven’t implemented cloud solutions should consider how this could benefit their work.
