Cloud computing, if indeed an inevitable paradigm shift, will open up worlds of opportunity for cleaner, fairer learning systems of all types.
A school district running on a lean budget will be able to access all the programs it needs. Remote or impoverished areas of the world will be granted fair access to all the learning system services that the privileged already take for granted.
Cloud computing will also mitigate the harmful effects of e-waste worldwide. The EPA estimates the computer industry recycles 60 million electronics products a year, most of which contain toxic materials and are exported to developing countries. With cloud computing, technology will become less wasteful, as fewer features will be required for older computers to serve as useful learning system tools.
