2 After listening to my lecture, you will be able to know the following:- PDAs and Cloud Computing PDAs and Cloud Computing Pedagogical applications of PDAs Pedagogical applications of PDAs
3 About PDA Personal digital assistant or personal data assistant It functions as a personal information manager A typical PDA has a touch screen for entering data, a memory card slot for data storage, and IrDA, Bluetooth, 3G and/or Wi-Fi.
4 Cloud Computing Cloud computing is a marketing term for technologies that provide computation, software, data access, and storage services. It does not require end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services.
5 Cloud Computing Cloud computing providers deliver applications via the internet, which are accessed from web browsers, desktop and mobile apps. The software and data are stored on servers at a remote location.
6 Cloud Computing What is ? With cloud computing, the software you use are not run from your personal computer, but rather stored on servers accessed via the internet. If your computer crashes, the software still available for others to use.
7 Cloud Computing What is not ? First, cloud computing is not network computing. First, cloud computing is not network computing. With network computing, applications./documents are hosted on a single company’s server and accessed over the company’s network. With network computing, applications./documents are hosted on a single company’s server and accessed over the company’s network.
8 Cloud Computing Cloud computing is a lot bigger than that. It encompasses multiple companies, multiple servers and multiple networks, plus unlike network computing, cloud services and storage are accessible from anywhere in the world over an internet connection. With network computing access is over the company’s network only.
9 Cloud Computing Cloud computing also is not traditional outsourcing, where a company forms out (subcontracts) its computing services to an outside firm. While an outsourcing firm might host a company’s data or applications, those documents and programs are only accessible to the company’s employees via the company’s network, not to the entire world via the internet.
10 Cloud Computing So despite superficial similarities, network computing and outsourcing are not cloud computing.

15 Cloud Computing From google’s perspectives, there are six key properties of cloud computing Cloud computing is user centric It is task centric It is powerful Is accessible It is intelligent Cloud computing is programmable
16 Pedagogical applications of PDA Amazon kindle applications E-books E-dictionaries PDA white board Time based applications Sending and receiving emails with ones handwriting
17 Pedagogical applications of PDA Video conferencing Applications for kids in learning Recording and sending it through mails Applications to take digital notes during a lecture E-diaries and so on.
18 Technopedagogical competencies The habit of reading e-versions of books, papers, journals, etc Taking notes with the help of PDAs during lectures Web designing skill and the knowledge of FTP Mobile technological skills like email communication through PDAs and the use of GPS etc
19 Technopedagogical competencies E-content development Effective use of search engines and meta search engines Navigation in Powerpoint presentation through mobile devices About cloud computing technology in teaching and learning
20 Technopedagogical competencies Organising video conferencing through PDAs whereever necessary Use of 3G and WiFi applications in teaching and learning Familiarity in using white boards in PDAs
21 Technopedagogical competencies Knowledge of pedagogical e-resources and their importance Knowledge of DATA storage both offline and onlne Knowledge of DATA backup, retrieval, recovery etc
