Episode 13: Trends for the Weeks of April 14-27 — Myth Busting and Student Engagement & Learning

April 29, 2014 § 1 Comment

Pew Internet Research Graph.We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of April 14-27, 2014. We discuss two trends we observed as we  flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We note that the trends are more of a potpourri of related ideas than they are specific trends that we have observed and reported on in past episodes. The two trends are myth busting and student engagement and learning. With both trends there are an array of resources we flipped that fit into one of these areas. An example of a resource we flipped that falls into the myth busting trend is the article on Confronting the Myth of the Digital Native by Megan O’ Neil published in The Chronicle of Higher Education (http://bit.ly/1o02rgR).

We have four recommending readings for the week.

We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of March 31-April 13, 2014. We discuss three trends we observed as we  flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The three trends were: cyber security (specifically due to Heartbleed), wearables (set for growth), and printers (3D printers continuing to come down in costs and portable printers).

 

We recommend three articles from the resources we flipped.
