With increased access to laptops, netbooks, and iPads, educators are building classrooms in the cloud. With anywhere - anytime access to learning materials, students and their teachers are able to communicate, cooperate, and collaborate without the barriers of classroom walls, paper textbooks, and traditional assignments. Tools such as Google Docs and Apps allow educators to design assignments and assessments that incorporate online books and resources, images, audio, video, and gadgets. Traditional paper and pencil activities are enhanced when students can easily collaborate, manipulate images, and build multimedia projects. Students working in these transmedia environments move seamlessly from books to social networks to online tools for reading, writing, and calculating. This workshop was designed to demonstrate the potential of this new way of thinking about teaching, learning, and technology.
