Session Description

The Web Alternative

Is it possible to live 100% on the web or in the cloud? I think so.  When Google announced it’s Chromebook idea (a laptop that is all web- just a browser) I decided to look if it was possible for my students.  Not only did I find an alternative cloud based app for just about everything I wanted to do, I was impressed with how well they worked; from video editing to graphics there was a lot of options and most of them were free.
