Cloud Storage


Cloud storage refers to websites that will host your files so you can access them from your computer, the web or your mobile device.  Using cloud storage allows an instructor or administrator to use less paper by sending the file to the cloud and sharing it with students instead of printing a copy on paper for every student. Instead of printing charts and bulletin board pictures in the classroom, do screen shots of your self-created pictures or charts and add them to a webpage.
There are numerous versions of cloud storage that are available to your iPad in addition to the iCloud.  Microsoft hosts SkyDrive, Google hosts Google Drive, there is Box, Dropbox, and even our Gaggle accounts have 'lockers' for file storage.  Most of the cloud storage locations will give you a minimum amount of storage space when you enroll.  Additional space may be purchased later.

Teachers may also want to try using something like Google Classroom or Showbie to share digital files with students.
