Abstract— Cloud Computing is welcoming to use the
services consumption and delivery platform as well as the way teachers and
students interact with IT resources. It represents a major conceptual shift
that introduces new elements in teaching models and learning environments that
are not present in traditional technologies. This represents the lease or
free usage of computing resources on a network of remote servers where
applications are executed and data is stored. Now a day in education it’s a
challenge for students and teachers. Now we are trying to achieve through some
E-Learning techniques like Moodle etc.. Here only thing it requires more
storage. If teachers want to share more information there is some restriction
in file size and type. There should be periodical update for effective
maintenance of storage servers. By introducing cloud in education we can
optimize the maintenance cost and increase the availability.

In present generation teaching is a big challenge for succesfull
achivement of different trendy methodologies.it is necessary to involve new
technologies to make the students fit for future trend.In Hybrid, or blended
style follows an integrated approach to
teaching that blends the technology and interests with students’ needs and
curriculum-appropriate methods.which will develop skill sets of both students
and teachers. Although it is not the
teacher’s job to entertain students, it is vital to engage them in the learning
process. Selecting a style that addresses the needs of diverse students at
different learning levels begins with a personal inventory—a self-evaluation—of
the teacher’s strengths and weaknesses. As they develop their teaching styles
and integrate them with effective classroom management skills, teachers will
learn what works best for their personalities and curriculum.
of technology in teaching
As we saw in introduction for effective teaching we should
involve technology. Nowadays technology is in everybody’s hand. There is lot of
teachers in the world who wants to explore their knowledge. But teacher wants to reach their knowledge to
specific group there should be interactive mediator between the group and the
teacher like Moodle in colleges. But in Moodle there is some storage
restrictions because they are maintaining local servers to store the
information. And at the same time, there should be some periodical update like
removing old files.so the teacher has to upload every time. He would not get a
chance to review old materials.
A. Ten Reasons Why Your Students NEED
Technology in the Classroom1
1) If used properly, mobile devices
and the applications they support will help prepare students for their future occupations.
2) Integrating technology into the
classroom is an operative way to connect with students of all learning styles.
3) It gives students the chance
to enhance the collaboration with their classmates and instructors by
4) Using technology in the classroom gives
teachers and other faculty members the opportunity to develop their
citizenship skills. It’s one thing to use mobile devices, it’s a completely other
thing to know how to use them correctly and responsibly.
5) Integrating technology in
education helps students stay engaged. Most students today have been using
mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to play and learn since they could
crawl. So it only seems logical to align today’s classrooms with the way that
your students want and are used to learning.
6) Combining new tech like VR (virtual
traditional classroom instruction is one example of how the introduction of new
technology can enhance the learning experience and create new opportunities.
7) When mobile technology is readily
available and performing correctly in the classroom, students are able to
access the most up-to-date information quicker and easier than ever before.
8) The traditional passive learning
model is broken. With technology in the classroom the teacher becomes the
encourager, adviser, and coach.
9) Technology helps students be more
responsible. Owning your own device or borrowing the school’s devices gives
students the opportunity to improve their decision making skills as well as
taking ownership of a valuable (and often times expensive) device. Again, this
needs to be complemented by proper digital citizenship training to see the best
10) Technology transforms the learning
experience. Students have access to an incredible amount of new opportunities.
From learning how to code to learning how to better collaborate across teams
and with their instructors–technology empowers students to be more creative
and be more connected. New tech has super-charged how we learn today.
cloud in education
There is a growing awareness around the utilization of
cloud computing in education. As organizations involved in the area typically
face severe budget restrictions, there is a need for cost optimization
mechanisms that discover exclusive features of digital learning environments
The word education is mix of Knowledge, skills, Values, beliefs and habits. We can
observe in Figure 1, the sides of education. There is a common platform for all
the activities which is serving as a centralized access point. Generally if we
want to establish this type of sharing environment it’s more expensive and
needs regular maintenance.

In this Process flow (Figure 2) the user has to
The user has to connect to GPRS / Bluetooth / Wi-Fi and
connect to the cloud network and get the required topics and based on the
selected topic the materials will be downloaded to the mobile for the reading
process. As we shown in figure 6, the mobile users retrieve the data either in
the form of text /video /voice from the cloud center. The subscribers are

many teaching materials overly simplify content and language).

is a place not only for competition, but also collaborative learning. Children
like to share their discoveries and newly learnt knowledge. Teamwork can be
enforced by giving one desktop to 4-5 children, assigning them a task, and
asking them to report the findings in front of the class.

overhauling some exams to allow access to resources such as the internet or
dictionaries, if the aim of the assessment is to replicate everyday tasks.
Given the wash back effect that exams exert, this also means the focus of
education should shift from test-taking (TT) towards solving more real-life
pretty neat alternative to the language lab or software in self-assessment of
pronunciation skills is using speech to-text software (if the goal is EFL
rather than ELF).
