This summer I am going to reevaluate every piece or our current school technology software looking for any that I can replace with free online Web 2.0. Everything from animation to drawing applications.
Here is an example: up until last year we paid a hefty fee to use the Microsoft Office product line, applications like Word, Excel and Powerpoint in our school. But now we use Google Docs -- a free online version similar to the before mentioned apps.
I have a feeling that Google Docs is just the beginning...
Apparently I am not the only one thinking about this. (CNET New Article)
