Collaborating in the Cloud

Teachers are also finding the Cloud has helped them work with colleagues from schools across the globe. As Beth Campbell states,

My life is easier in that I have 24/7 access to everything I create, store, and use. I can collaborate with others across the world. It has made me a stronger and more connected teacher. Isolation is not an option. (personal communication, January 5, 2014)
