      Recently, cloud computing switched from being an experimental technology assisting everyday users through various cloud based applications. In a similar fashion, the use of cloud computing can improve the logistic infrastructure of the school computer labs and promote the introduction of innovative educational practices to the teaching of computer science related courses, as well as courses of different disciplines. Due to the economic crisis faced by many European countries, Greece included, the cost of continuously upgrading school computer labs, in order to follow the latest technological trends, is forbidden. Cloud computing provides an affordable solution to this problem by enabling the reuse of the existing computer equipment of the school computer labs and investing exclusively to the cloud computing infrastructure, an investment which is much lower than that of upgrading all school computer labs. This article presents a proposal of an implementation of the cloud computing based school. The conducted experiments indicated that this implementation could support the teaching process with respect to Computer Science, Information and Communication Technologies applications for Secondary and Primary Education schools.
