According to research, ICT (Information & Communication Technologies) teaching could be improved in the UK’s private schools if cloud computing methods are adopted.

As a result of the new wave technology known as ‘the cloud’, school staff could be saved on down-time, maintenance, upgrades as well as share""d costs.

According to a representative from ICT for education, they said that ‘the systems must be utilised by specialist ICT exerts’.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England have also recently announced new funding programmes worth £12.5million. The new funding has been specifically designed to assist colleges and universities that want to integrate a cloud computing infrastructure into their current operations in-house.

Sarah Underwood, one of the brand editors of the ICT for Education magazine said: “It would be a great step forward for education if schools choose to adopt it. There will be some, such as ICT specialist schools and academies that will use the cloud quite soon, I imagine.”

Underwood added: “some schools are already using shared managing services, which could benefit from cloud computing
