Technology and particularly Cloud technology can definitely prove to be a powerful tool in linking the physical to the virtual world by allowing an escape and freedom from the two-dimensional world of paper-based teaching and learning. Balance is therefore achieved while educators and students access and create digital information on top of the physical world. Technology is everybody's favorite thus educators should definitely consider integrating them in their teaching in order to increase motivation.
