Training of creative talents during K-12 education affects the future of a nation. As a result, researchers in China and other countries give special attention to the field of pedagogy. This paper evaluated an experimental class of Beijing F High School as the case study, and performed an empirical study on cloud-based pedagogy for training the creative talents, a quantitative study based on the 6 basic aspects of Tyler's theory, a qualitative study using ethnography for classroom observation that included interviews of teachers, students, and observers, and employed a sequential mixed research method used for data collection and analysis. Results demonstrated that cloud-based pedagogy in the creative-talent class of Beijing F High School focused on objectives in its orientation, the curriculum content, implementation and development reflecting the richness, regression, correlation, and rigor of postmodern curriculum. By using the accelerated and enriched cloud-based curriculum and focusing on the Talent Search Model, the Beijing F High School was able to gain rich experiences in the training of creative talents in Chinese K-12 education.
