The Cloud feels like an infinite solution to all our problems of limited storage, software support, and curriculum delivery but there are cases where it doesn’t fit in education. Is the Cloud our hope or an overrated solution? In this panel, ask questions of educators with different experiences: a classroom teacher who is using the cloud and a school district network engineer who isn’t, We’re also joined by the 30-year edtech veteran and CEO of NetSupport, who has seen it all and is frequently called to discuss this topic in keynotes around the globe. This is an unscripted Q&A session where the media and freelance writers can ask questions — emailed in advance or during the panel — and our panelists will share what they’ve learned and how they are implementing Cloud-based solutions (or not).
