This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
Is it possible to live 100% on the web or in the cloud? I think so. When Google announced it's Chromebook idea (a laptop that is all web- just a browser) I decided to look if it was possible for my students. Not only did I find an alternative cloud based app for just about everything I wanted to do, I was impressed with how well they worked; from video editing to graphics there was a lot of options and most of them were free.
