Classroom in the Cloud Cover final

We are very pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of an exciting new book that “offers a clear debate and a real vision of the future of education in this country”.

Classroom in the Cloud by Alex McGrath will be published by John Catt Educational on October 13.

The book is subtitled ‘Seizing the advantage in the blended learning revolution’. It aims to focus the minds of teachers and school leaders to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the online revolution and the emergence of blended learning.

The author, who is Head of King’s Ely Senior School in Cambridgeshire, argues that with planning and co-ordination, huge benefits can be reaped from new ways of learning, complementing the traditions of British education.

He looks at the implications for the UK of e-learning practices and techniques introduced overseas and urges teachers and leaders to face the challenges posed by new technology and embrace change.

Classroom in the Cloud has already received some excellent reviews from leading figures in education.

Ian Yorston, Director of Digital Strategy, Radley College, Oxfordshire, said: “Important. Timely. Thought-provoking. Anyone involved in schools needs to read this.”

Gerry Holden, Headmaster of Dover College, said: “This is a very exciting call to arms, offering good, practical advice to those who may feel out of their depth. It offers a clear debate and a real vision of the future of education in this country.”
