The ‘cloud’ is the term meaning a collection of online data which is stored online. Creating a classroom cloud is extremely useful because it allows for all the children’s work to be stored in one place and shared easily.
Here are 3 tech tools which make creating a cloud nice and straightforward:
- Google Drive. This is the tool I use in my class to create a cloud. I set up folders for each piece of work and ensure the pupils know where to save them. Drive is probably the best option for you if you use Google Docs a lot; furthermore, it works seamlessly with Google Classroom.
- OneDrive makes sharing and storing information simple. This is probably best for you if you mainly use Microsoft Office – again it links seamlessly.
- Showbie is a very useful tool. It lets you set up a classroom ‘cloud’ but what is even better is that annotations and voice notes can be added on top – a great way to support collaboration in your class.
