Homework in the Cloud

My son wrote an English paper over the weekend using Adobe Buzzword (a web-based word processor at adobe.com). Students write their paper online and designate the teacher as a “reviewer" to make comments. The paper is written and stored in the cloud. No paper is used, no forgetting it at home, no “my dog ate my homework”. Very progressive. Someday, they’re going to have to stop calling them “papers”.
