December 9, 2014 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of November 24-December 7. We discuss three trends one notable note that we observed as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The trends are announcements about and enhancements of messaging and video conferencing tools, increased discussions on tablets and phablets, and a focus on neuroscience in teaching, learning, and training. Our notable note is the passing of Ralph Baer (http://bit.ly/1Gbje9T) the inventor of the first home gaming console .
We have three recommended readings for the week.
