Episode 13: Trends for the Weeks of April 14-27 — Myth Busting and Student Engagement & Learning
April 29, 2014 § 1 Comment
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.

- Coherence Principle: Less Material for Better Learning: http://bit.ly/1kbDLOz
