Episode 21: Trends for the Weeks of August 18-31 Coding as Part of K12 Curriculum, Neuroscience Studies, and iPhone 6



We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of August 18-31, 2014. We discuss three trends  that we observed as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The trends we observed were coding as a part of the K12 curriculum, movement forward in neuroscience through the release of several studies on learning and the brain, and  September 9th when Apple’s iPhone 6 is reportedly coming out.

We have three recommended readings for the week.
